Venice - Biennial

Meetings on Architecture

La Biennale di Venezia - Teatro Piccolo Arsenale

28 May 201626 Nov 2016

The Meetings on Architecture are back for the 15th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. This programme of events on the themes and case studies presented at the Exhibition will take place throughout the whole period of Biennale Architettura 2016, involving the architects and participants of Reporting From the Front curated by Alejandro Aravena.

“If the ultimate goal of the Biennale is to share knowledge and exchange experiences – Aravena explains – we should offer a variety of channels for that to take place. Meeting the authors and listening to their experiences is still one of the most powerful ways to learn from others. Once a month, some of the participants will have a conversation and share with the public their insights, doubts, and the turning points in the projects that they are showing. We have organised them around themes, but architecture by nature always integrates more than one dimension. These Meetings will thus be a way to get from the authors themselves the richness and complexity of the built environment, and what it takes to get things done.”
