Biennale Architettura 2021
How will we live together?
The 17th International Architecture Exhibition, titled How will we live together?, is being curated by Hashim Sarkis and organised by La Biennale di Venezia. The exhibition will be open to the public from Saturday 22nd May to Sunday 21st November 2021 at the Giardini and Arsenale venues.
Curator Hashim Sarkis explains that, “The Biennale Architettura 2021 is motivated by new kinds of problems that the world is putting in front of architecture, but it is also inspired by the emerging activism of young architects and the radical revisions being proposed by the profession of architecture to take on these challenges. But more than ever, architects are called upon to propose alternatives. As citizens, we mobilise our synthetic skills to bring people together to resolve complex problems. As artists, we defy the inaction that comes from uncertainty to ask, ‘What if?’. And as builders, we draw from our bottomless well of optimism. The confluence of roles in these nebulous times can only make our agency stronger and, we hope, our architecture more beautiful.”
