VENICE BIENNALE 2021
VENICE BIENNALE 2021
The Architectural Biennale will open to the public on May 22 and will go on until November 21st , 2021
The main venues are the Giardini and the Arsenale, however many state pavilions are spread all over the city, and there’s also a good number of collateral events, with major exhibits at the Guggenheim and Francois Pinault Foundations.
President Paolo Baratta and curator of this 17th edition, Hashim Sarkis, presented the exhibit under title of “How Will we Live Together?”. A question that architects are invited to answer not only with theoretical announcements, rather presenting their projects and searching the collaboration of other professionals, such as scientists, artists, politicians, journalists, but also common citizens.
Starting from the consciousness that our planet is facing rapid and radical changes with multiple difficulties, teams of experts need to collaborate in order to find architectural solutions to the problems caused by climate changes, inevitable migrations, overcrowded megalopolises, global epidemics (we are writing this post in the midst of the coronavirus crisis), social and economic instability, progressive and inevitable exhaustion of building materials.
President Paolo Baratta stresses di accent on the gap between those vast areas where housing means a simple roof over your head, and other realities where houses have become obsolete and need to be updated. That’s why architects must develop their projects keeping in mind all the modern discoveries in the fields of automation and artificial intelligence. He states: “We look forward to the collective architectural imagination to meet this momentous occasion with creativity and courage.”
Human beings are bound to live together, notwithstanding our strong sense of individuality, need to learn how to survive in good harmony with all the other species. Our houses must be the expression of our dignity and identity, never bypassing the ideas of inclusion and social equity. AS humans, we are bound to search valid solutions for our planet, including man, animals and plants.
