This discussion would like to put this issue on the table, by emphasizing on the role of the void in various design strategies.

We interpret the freespace motto, chosen by Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara for the Biennale Architettura 2018, as…
… everything which makes a place or a space become a place or space for enjoyment, in the broadest sense of the word…
… that thing nobody asked for but which, generously, generation after generation, is poured into our collective building environment…
… that which is linked to time, place, people, joy…
… after all, what else is architecture?

The proposal becoming, curated by Atxu Amann - who is the leader of a team of adjunct curators and experts - wishes to foresee what is just about to arrive ...
... before it gets confused in the context of what is already established ...
... because we perceive that the solutions of the past are no longer satisfactory to us, if they ever were ...
... because we want a different existence, more coherent with our way of being and understanding ...
... because we need places and spaces that match our feelings ...
... because nobody seems interested in the small, the different, the useless, the close, the near, the beloved ...
... because we do not want to live sadly...
... because we want the spaces to be ours, customised to our size ...
... because the students are the future, our hope for a different world ...
