BIENNALE ARCHITETTURA 2016

REPORTING FROM THE FRONT

The 15th International Architecture Exhibition, titled REPORTING FROM THE FRONT,  curated by Alejandro Aravena and organized by La Biennale di Venezia opened to the public from Saturday May 28th to Sunday November 27th 2016 at the Giardini and the Arsenale venues. The Exhibition included 88 participants from 37 different countries and 63 National Participations, four countries participated for the first time: Philippines, Nigeria, Seychelles and Yemen.

The curator’s proposal was twofold: “on the one hand we would like to widen the range of issues to which architecture is expected to respond, adding explicitly to the cultural and artistic dimensions that already belong to our scope, those that are on the social, political, economical and environmental end of the spectrum. On the other hand, we would like to highlight the fact that architecture is called to respond to more than one dimension at a time, integrating a variety of fields instead of choosing one or another.”
