Brazil’s official participation in the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale, is curated by the architects Gabriel Kozlowski, Laura González Fierro, Marcelo Maia Rosa and Sol Camacho. Selected by the Fundação Bienal de São Paulo, they present “Muros de ar” [Walls of Air], an exhibition that explores the interaction of material and immaterial spaces in Brazil and its architecture.
“The theme considers the wall as an element of Brazilian architecture, culture and identity and views the transposition of this element as an invitation to social and cultural multiplicity,” the architect-curators explain. “In this manner, it is set against the homogenization, intolerance and extremism that result from isolation and reclusion. It is a proposal that celebrates togetherness and not just coexistence.”
