An evolution of national architectures, the survival of unique national features and the fresh understanding of architecture, Biennale’s exhibition on Fundamentals will focus on histories and the inevitable elements of all architecture used by any architect, anywhere, anytime. Over the last 100 years, under the influence of wars, individual talents and technological developments, architectures that were once specific and local have become interchangeable and global. La Biennale’s exhibitions generate a global overview of architecture’s evolution into a single, modern aesthetic, uncovering within globalization the survival of unique national features and mentalities that continue to exist and flourish.
Look out for the Mostra di Architettura di Venezia, the architecture section of La Biennale di Venezia. Held biannually in Venice, the event showcases the best international new projects from architects.
Taking place across the city of Venice, the 15th International Architecture Exhibition will focus on ‘Reporting from the Front’. This theme looks to pick out success stories where architecture has improved the quality of the built environment and the positive effects it has had on peoples’ lives. Curator Alejandro Aravena has highlighted the tougher challenge faced by many to find a place to live. In an increasingly complex world, students can turn to the impact of architecture in improving quality of life not for the individual but for the collective.
‘The 15th International Architecture Exhibition will be about focusing and learning from architectures that by balancing intelligence and intuition are able to escape the status quo.’ Alejandro Aravena
