DC at the Venice Biennale 2021 in Resilient Communities
Resilient Communities Italian Pavilion at the Biennale of Architecture 2021 17. International Architecture Exhibit – Venice’s Biennale. Arsenal – Tese delle Vergini May 22nd/November 21st 2021
Vernissage: Friday, May 21st Public opening: Saturday, May 22nd, 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM
The 17. International Architecture Exhibit will be held from May 22nd to November 21st 2021. It is curated by architect, professor and researcher Hashim Sarkis. The world is launching new challenges for architecture to tackle – commented Sarkis. I’m eager to work with architect from all over the world to imagine together how to face these challenges. Sarkis has been the president of the School of Architecture and Planning al Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) since 2015.
Alessandro Melis, architect and professor, is the Director of the Cluster for Sustainable Cities, University of Portsmouth (UK).
“Resilient Communities places at the centre of the exhibition, in all its dramatic quality, the question of climate change and all the demanding challenges which face architecture.
The main objecture of the Italian pavilion will be that of encourage reflection in unprecedented ways on the mechanisms of cumminity resilience, paramount key to the understanding the process of recovery of a new way for urban space and manufacturing territory to interact, in the spirit of interdisciplinarity of skills and nondeterministic evolutionary logics, central elements in transitional moments”.
The section dedicated to Dolomiti Contemporanee opens the Italian Pavilion.
It was titled Dolomiti Care, giving it a double possible reading: in Italian (meaning “dear”, a playful allusion to the cheesy, terrible vernacular: our dear old, loved, Dolomites, always in our hearts), and in English (care, to care for).
In the Dolomiti Care section are displayed the vision and design that characterise Dolomiti Contemporanee, which turns ten this year.
Dolomiti Contemporanee‘s vision insists on the responsible need to face themes linked to the regeneration of the heritage through an open, non-schematic and multidisciplinary perspective; on the development of project-oriented contexts and experimental strategies, both non-ephemereal and effective for the co-generation of a reactive identity for a contemporary version of the mountain, one which can transform into a pioneering space/hub of innovation; in that mountain, always being built, art, culture and research may be able to act following an evolutive drive, carrying out a role of enzymatic catalyst, both transformative and propulsive, able to grant developmental impulses to territories (RSA, Rigenerazione Spaziale Alpina – Spatial Alpine Rigenerationa). All of this can also be called: cultural resilience.
The topic covered are represented in the exhibit via graphics, texts and videos.
On Friday, August 6th, from 3 to 6 PM, at the Italian Pavilion the talk Dolomiti Contemporanee: cogeneration of cultural corrugation, will take place, wtih many different speakers in attendance.
Details on the Italian pavilion, on the Dolomiti Care section and on the events linked to them will only be divulged after the public opening on May 23rd, and will be available at the websites listed below from then on.
