2016 ‘Time Space Existence’ exhibition at Palazzo Mora, Venice


As part of the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale 2016 “Reporting from the Front”, the collateral event “Time Space Existence” at Palazzo Bembo, Palazzo Mora, and Palazzo Rossini, presents an international group of architects from 6 continents.

The exhibition documents current developments and thoughts in architecture, highlighting fundamental questions by discussing the philosophical concepts of “Time, Space, and Existence”.
Architects with different cultural backgrounds, and who are in different stages of their careers – established architects next to architects whose works might be less known – have in common their dedication to architecture in the broadest sense of their profession.

The rooms in Palazzo Bembo mainly highlight solo presentations by architects such as Peter Eisenman, Curt Fentress, Woha, and Studio Razavi, or research projects such as the University of Arkansas.
The exhibition at Palazzo Mora presents, within its grand spaces, a variety of architects such as the work of Denise Scott Brown, the University of Sydney, Auckland, and MIT.
In Palazzo Rossini takes place a large presentation from the work of GMP Architekten and the AAC Academy.

Time Space Existence, (Palazzo Mora). In their exhibition ‘City(e)State’ Alison Brooks Architects documents the evolution of state-sponsored housing architecture as a reflection of the social, economic, and political values of the day.  The exhibition uncovers qualities found in Britain’s monumental urban housing estates, and how these have become synonymous with economic and social segregation. These are examined in relation to four specific urban paradigms found in a north London neighborhood: 1890s suburb; 1960s modernist estate; contemporary masterplan; and intensified, ‘ideal’ future. (Photos Paul Riddle).

In Antakya, in a geography where every dig reveals findings of archeological relevance, contrary to the common practice the client chose to unveil the potential of the site.
