Meetings on Architecture at the Biennale Architettura 2016

< Back
10 | 21 | 2016

The Meetings on Architecture are back for the 15th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. This programme of events on the themes and case studies presented at the Exhibition takes place throughout the whole period of Biennale Architettura 2016, involving the architects and participants of REPORTING FROM THE FRONT curated by Alejandro Aravena.
“If the ultimate goal of the Biennale is to share knowledge and exchange experiences – Aravena explains - we should offer a variety of channels for that to take place. Meeting the authors and listening to their experiences is still one of the most powerful ways to learn from others. Once a month, some of the participants will have a conversation and share with the public their insights, doubts, and the turning points in the projects that they are showing. We have organised them around themes, but architecture by nature always integrates more than one dimension. These Meetings will thus be a way to get from the authors themselves the richness and complexity of the built environment, and what it takes to get things done.”

The Meetings on Architecture are realised with the support of Rolex. Arnaud Boetsch, Director Communication & Image, has stated that “Rolex is proud to be associated with another thought-provoking Biennale Architettura. Our additional support to the Meetings on Architecture will further enhance the Exhibition’s reputation as the foremost forum for architectural ideas.”
The Meetings on Architecture take place in conjunction with a number of events linked to the Special Projects of the 15th Exhibition, especially the Project of the London School of Economics and Political Science curated by Ricky Burdett and the Forte Marghera’s Special Project.
The annual conference Urban Age titled Shaping Cities: Conflicts Of An Urban Age (July 14th and 15th from 10:30 am at the Teatro alle Tese Arsenale) explored the interrelationships between urban form and urban society, focusing on the social, spatial and political forces that shape cities. The conference was hosted by La Biennale di Venezia in the context of Habitat III - United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Quito, Ecuador, 17-20 October 2016). It is a joint initiative of the London School of Economics and Political Science and Deutsche Bank’s Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft, with the aim of shaping the debate and influencing policy-making in global cities.
