Hashim Sarkis Biennale Architettura 2021 - How will we live together ?
“The official catalogue of the 17th International Architecture Exhibition asks the question: how are we going to live together? It consists of two volumes: the first is dedicated to the international exhibition curated by Hashim Sarkis and the second presents the national participations and collateral events. “How are we to live together? “is as much a social and political question as it is a spatial one: rapidly changing social norms, increasing political polarisation, climate change and vast global inequalities are making it more urgent than ever before. At the same time, the weakness of current political models forces us to consider how architecture shapes habitat and community. The architects invited to participate in the Architettura 2021 Biennale are encouraged to include other professions and interest groups – artists, builders and craftsmen, but also politicians, journalists, social scientists and ordinary citizens. Indeed, the Biennale affirms the vital role of the architect as a cordial convener and guardian of the spatial contract.”
