The curator Atxu Amann and a team of four others have selected, via an open call, 143 proposals that will be shown in the Spanish Pavilion during the Biennale Architettura 2018.
Under the title becoming, the exhibition, which has been curated by the architect Atxu Amann, opens the doors to actions, discourses and productions from architecture students developed between 2012 and 2017.
For the first time, Spain will present a virtual pavilion with another 293 proposals. The exhibition reflects the proposals and research that are being developed in learning environments along with the new multidisciplinary nature of architects.The Spanish Pavilion will open May 25 at 1.30pm
After winning the Golden Lion award at the Biennale Architettura 2016 for Unfinished – a project by architects Carlos Quintáns and Iñaqui Carnicero that explored the reinvented architecture of the construction crisis – the Spanish Pavilion now addresses the future of architecture from the point of researchers.
Becoming looks to the future, and a common ground of training in schools, which extends to other learning spaces and at times creates dialogue with other disciplines.
From a starting point of 55 adjectives that qualify architecture and were presented in the Open Call, becoming provides a space for heterogeneous proposals and reflections on architecture and vindication of learning environments as a space for criticism and architectural creation.
