DAY 01.

Pea White “Qwalala” - Le Stanze di Vetro Isola S.Giorgio Maggiore - Venice

01

„Qwalala“ is the new monumental sculpture made by the American artist Pae White on the occasion of the 57th International Architecture Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia. Qwalala for native American people means “place from where water descends” but for American artist also means glass, colors, transparency, technology, craftsmanship, engineering, architecture and sculpture for that reason she has realized a curving wall made of 3,000 solid glass-bricks, each hand-cast in the Veneto region.

Fondazione Querini Stampalia By Carlo Scarpa

01

In 1949 the Presidential Council of Fondazione Querini Stampalia decided to start the restoration of some parts of the palace. Carlo Scarpa was commissioned to renovate a part of the ground floor and the back garden. The renovation works by Scarpa are based on a balanced combination of old and new elements, as well as on great workmanship and careful combination of the materials.

Giardini della Biennale La Biennale di Venezia

01

The central international exhibition develops from the Central Pavilion in the Giardini to the Arsenale and shows works by 71 participants.

FREESPACE provides the opportunity to emphasise nature’s free gifts of light - sunlight and moonlight; air; gravity; materials - natural and man-made resources."

"FREESPACE describes a generosity of spirit and a sense of humanity at the core of architecture’s agenda, focusing on the quality of space itself. FREESPACE focuses on architecture’s ability to provide free and additional spatial gifts to those who use it and on its ability to address the unspoken wishes of strangers. FREESPACE celebrates architecture’s capacity to find additional and unexpected generosity in each project - even within the most private, defensive, exclusive or commercially restricted conditions.

Svizzera 240: House Tour Swiss Pavilion

It’s the first time that the Swiss Pavilion, with the installation of “Swiss 240: Hause tour”, won the Golden Lion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition at Biennale in Venice. This internationally acclaimed prize is awarded to the exhibition of the architects’ team of the Zurichbased ETH, formed by Alessandro Bosshard, Li Tavor, Matthew van der Ploeg and Ani Vihervaara. The exhibition focuses on the unfurnished interior of contemporary housing and standard dimensions by celebrating a peculiar form of architectural representation: the house tour. 01 Interior of the pavilion 02 MACH scale figures 03 Window detail 04 Door detail

Arsenale

La Biennale di Venezia

01

“FREESPACE encourages reviewing ways of thinking, new ways of seeing the world, of inventing solutions where architecture provides for the well-being and dignity of each citizen of this fragile planet. FREESPACE can be a space for opportunity, a democratic space, un-programmed and free for uses not yet conceived. FREESPACE encompasses freedom to imagine the free space of time and memory, binding past, present and future together, building on inherited cultural layers, weaving the archaic with the contemporary.� Yvonne Farrell + Shelley McNamara Curator of Biennale Architettura 2018
