“With the theme of Freespace, the Biennale Architettura 2018 will present for public scrutiny examples, proposals, elements - built or unbuilt - of work that exemplifies essential qualities of architecture which include the modulation, richness and materiality of surface; the orchestration and sequencing of movement, revealing the embodied power and beauty of architecture.” Curators Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara introduce with these words, part of the FREESPACE Manifesto, the 16th International Architecture Exhibition. A complex exhibition in which architects –accompanied by 63 National Participations, 12 Collateral Events and a Special Project - are invited to reveal the FREESPACE ingredient embedded in their work.
