With Arcipelago Italia, the pavilion he curated for the Venice Architecture Biennale 2018 (26 May- 26 Nov), Mario Cucinella offers a different look on Italy. What emerges is a political role for architecture and an alternative development model to that of megalopolis
The 57th Venice Biennale, curated by Christine Macel, opens tomorrow, May 13th until November 26th. We already speak of déjà vu: “again the subversive ideas of the 70s, the pop of the 80s”.
The Venice Biennale by Alejandro Aravena is politically engaged but not angry, dense in content but immediate in telling. «Reporting From The Front» talks about an architecture that redeems itself as an instrument of social change. Thus becoming a must see event.
