Inaugural, Virtual Spanish Pavilion, “becoming” Unveiled at Biennale Architettura 2018.
The Spanish Pavilion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia presents its central theme: becoming. It is curated by architect Atxu Amann, notable architect and scholar with experience in all facets of architecture and design. Along with co-curators María Mallo, Gonzalo Pardo, Andrés Cánovas, Nicolás Maruri, the pavilion explores the future of the field of architecture by way of its display of students’ proposals and research. The installation presents numerous innovative concepts and designs, all drawing from the theme of FREESPACE. According to La Biennale di Venezia:
“Freespace refers to generosity, focusing on the quality of space itself; to the contribution or gift of an additional free space to inhabitants; to the unexpected in each project independent of its diverse restrictions. To the use of the virtues of nature, the generation with a new way of thinking, where architecture provides well-being and dignity. To the possibility of imagining free space of memory and time, uniting past, present and future.”
