BIENNALE ARCHITETTURA 2018 WHAT TO SEE: THE PAVILIONS
Albania- the Albanian pavilion, entitled Zero Space, is the most interesting of the Biennale Architettura 2018.
Zero Space is that of squares and streets, you can find on the ground floor of the buildings and becomes a public space.
Latvia– the title is “Together and Apart” and presents apartment buildings in relation to architecture’s role in organizing society. Latvia, the country with the highest rate of people living in apartments, explores this banal but not studied subject.
The exhibition is divided into four sections and the most interesting is “Promise”, a study of how urban development in Latvia was a political project which didn’t lead to success.
Singapore – Singapore is the second densest country in the world and therefore urban matter in this city has to face the recurring lack of space.
The Singapore Pavilion, hence, shows how a limit has become an incentive to innovation.
The title of the Pavilion is “No More Free space?”
