Biennale Architettura 2018 | Padiglione Albania

Biennale Architettura 2018 – Padiglione Albania


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?”

From quadrature for walls and ceilings, to temporary apparatus for the rites of the community and of power, from architecture for the stage to designs for ornamentation and the decorative arts, to end with some examples of drawings for ‘real’ architecture

  1. Come sempre il tempo a disposizione è ridotto, i padiglioni sono molti e le mostre tutte interessanti. Inoltre, gli eventi in tutta Venezia aumentano in occasione della biennale, spesso non si riesce a vedere tutto ciò che la mostra offre. L’articolo è molto interessante ed utile per il visitatore che vuole godere appieno il clima della 75^ Mostra Biennale Architettura.

    • Hai perfettamente ragione. Vedere tutto è quasi impossibile ma è fattibile fare un programma e vedere molto.
      Venezia offre sempre tanti eventi per tutti i gusti e il bello della Biennale è proprio questo, che attira in città tantissimi eventi 😉
