Everything You Need To Know About Biennale Architettura 2018 – This year the Biennale Architettura, in Venice, has started on May 26th and will remain open until Sunday, 25th November. The Arsenal and the Gardens host the 16th International Architecture Exhibition, entitled FREESPACE, that was curated by Yvonne Farrell and Sheley McNamara.
This new exhibition is divided into several spaces, with a total of 71 participating countries, plus those of the two special sections: Close Encounter, with remarkable projects from 16 participants born from a reflection on well-known projects from the past, and The Practice of Teaching, with 13 participants, that showcases the works developed within the teaching.
This edition of the Venice Biennale presents, in fact, numerous participations. Here are the 3 unmissable pavilions that Milan Design Agenda recommends:
Canada – UNCEDED: Voices of the Land. Canada Builds/Rebuilds at Pavilion in Venice. There are many reasons to see it, from the restoration of the Canadian pavilion at the Giardini della Biennale, to the celebrations for its 60th anniversary. The exhibition can be visited in the Arsenale exhibition space and celebrates life in all its forms, starting from nature.
Turkey – Vardiya (“shift”). This pavilion stands out for the very full program of public events: productions, meetings, presentations, conferences, workshops, roundtables… It’s impossible to be bored! From this myriad of events, the architecture students of Venice are the main beneficiaries: some selected students have been able to host their video-installations and even are event organizers.
China – Building a future countryside. In this exhibition, you can see the very modern image of this country surrounded by the oldest and most original: technological innovations, modern economic and logistical solutions (“sharing economy”,) accompanied by century-old traditions and centuries. File-rouge is the hope of recovery of ancient values, because, sometimes returning to the past is the best way to imagine the future.
“With the aim of promoting the “desire” of architecture”, said President Baratta, explaining that this edition of the Venice Biennale Architettura puts the focus on space and its quality (how to use it). One more step towards our future.
