Postponed last year due to the health emergency, the 17th International Architecture Exhibition will take place from 22 May to 21 November 2021 at the Giardini and Arsenale venues. This edition is curated by the architect and scholar Hashim Sarkis. “The world is putting new challenges in front of architecture – stated Sarkis – I look forward to working with participating architects from all over the world to imagine together how we are going to rise to these challenges”.
The International Exhibition titled “How will we live together?” will be articulated between the Central Pavilion at the Giardini, the Arsenale, and Forte Marghera, including 112 participants in competition coming from 46 Countries with increased representation from Africa, Latin America, and Asia. In addition to the invited participants, the Biennale Architettura 2021 also includes stations and co-habitats, researchers out of competition on the themes of the exhibition and developed by universities around the world.
Organized in five scales between the Arsenale and the Central Pavilion at the Giardini, the exhibition also presents large installations connected to one of the five scales, which will be placed in the external spaces of the Arsenale and the Giardini. “How will we play together?” is the project devoted to children’s play at Forte Marghera, presented by five architects and an architectural photographer.
