THE 17TH INTERNATIONAL ARCHITECTURE EXHIBITION
PAVILION OF TURKEY TO PRESENT ARCHITECTURE AS MEASURE AT THE 17TH INTERNATIONAL ARCHITECTURE EXHIBITION, LA BIENNALE DI VENEZIA
The website of Architecture as Measure was launched on Tuesday, December 1, 2020.
By focusing on the relationship between the quotidian and the planetary, Architecture as Measure suggests another route for architecture’s relationship to the world, in which it is more of an agent than a mere respondent.
Curated by Neyran Turan and coordinated by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV), the Pavilion of Turkey will present Architecture as Measure at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia titled: How Will We Live Together?. Taking place from 22 May to 21 November 2021. Co-sponsored by Schüco Turkey and VitrA, the Pavilion of Turkey is located at Sale d’Armi, Arsenale, one of the main venues of the Biennale. Presented through an installation, a website and storytelling, the Pavilion of Turkey focuses on the politics and nuances of the seemingly mundane aspects and sites of architectural construction from material extraction to supply chains, maintenance and care in Turkey and beyond.
BIENNALE ARCHITETTURA SNEAK PEEK: THE NEW DIGITAL PROJECT
Podcasts, videos and images to “peek” behind the scenes of the 17th International Architecture Exhibition.
Thursday, November 12th is the starting date for the Biennale Architettura Sneak Peek, the new digital project leading up to the 17th International Architecture Exhibition (22 May > 21 November 2021), titled How will we live together? curated by Hashim Sarkis.
A new video-interview with Hashim Sarkis, conducted by the architectural historian and critic Luca Molinari, starts the project. Unique videos and images of what we will see in the 2021 edition will follow. This is a unique opportunity to “peek” at the exhibition, with a daily schedule on the website of La Biennale di Venezia and its digital platforms (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube) that will alternate between the contributions of the invited participants and those of the National Pavilions at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition.
“Over the coming few months – stated Sarkis – we will be releasing a series of sneak peeks of the projects, laying out a bridge that leads us towards the inauguration of the Exhibition”
