The Pavilion celebrates neighbourliness – a once unavoidable bond that defines our lives, fulfils our need to belong, and makes a place out of our address.
In Albania, less than 20 years ago next-door neighbours were often closer than relatives. Today, only one generation later, diving deep in the waters of globalisation we too have moved toward an isolated indifference and uncertainty.
Symbolically spotlighting what might lie beyond our apartment walls, the pavilion presents an invitation to cross them and rediscover the gift of this bond.
Three neighbouring apartments, secretly share a space that can only come to life if the neighbours are willing to make the discovery.

Biennale Sneak Peek

Image 1 – How will we live together?
Know your neighbor! Twenty years ago this scene was extremely common. Today it is rare. Togetherness starts in our homes and their immediate surroundings – the birthplace of our sense of belonging, of place and community.

Image 2 – Sneak peek of the project
Three neighboring apartments that share much more than walls. The Albanian Pavilion will dare you to dive into the meaning of living together in our homes, in our buildings, in our neighborhoods.
