The Pavilion presents the project of constructing cooperative centres and their life. Over the course of their 70-year history, these centres have seen big changes in the political and economic system, assumed new uses, and traced the lives of their local communities. Their history shows us how we can create vibrant and vigorous community spaces. The exhibition highlights the dimensions of the project in its geographical, organisational and social context. The design of the pavilion lends character to and informs the workings of the indoor public space as it relates to the design and construction of cooperative centres. The exhibition offers the chance to understand how indoor public spaces can be set up as a social infrastructure that fosters free interaction and association, communication and empowerment.

Biennale Sneak Peek

Image 1 – How will we live together?
The exhibition The Common in Community is bound to research of ways of coexisting and collaborating. It spans spatial, social and generational scales, and it dares to offer tentative answers to the question How will we live together?.

Interior public space – built, managed, and used by its community – is a social infrastructure that has the potential of establishing diversity of communities, supporting emancipation, and ensuring spatial equity.
