Description

You cannot enter La casa infinita (The infinite house); you are always inside of it. It is so large that you cannot leave. It is open and wide, simple and discreet. The house is so large that you can go around it on foot, by bike, car, train, bus, or even by plane. It has gardens, mountains and prairies. It has small rooms, beds and tables. Every space is connected. Going around the house becomes a lifelong journey.
Visitors find spaces wriggling along a wall that articulates and connects them. This wall derives from the geometric manipulation of the traditional Argentine family house. Each visitor experiences as many houses as paths taken, just as we do in our everyday lives.
The Pavilion presents a selection of works and plans by housing projects. In all of these, common areas are fundamental to the way we relate to each other and the way we choose to live together.

Biennale Sneak Peek

You cannot enter the infinite house. You are always inside the infinite house. It is so large that you cannot leave. It is open and wide, simple and discreet. It does not have a predetermined path.
We believe that each of us lives in a different house, but in the end we realize that it is always the same; we share it. It belongs to everyone.
The house is so large that you can go around it on foot, by bike, car, train, bus, even by plane.
It has big gardens, with mountains and prairies. It has small rooms, with beds and tables. Every space is connected. Going around the house becomes a lifelong journey.

The infinite house represents our world, the world we inhabit together.
