"How will we live together?" Venice architecture biennale 2020

July 23 2019

2020’s architecture biennale will be titled: ‘how will we live together?’

During the launching of the 17th International Architecture Exhibition, the theme was announced at a press conference at Ca’ Giustinian in Venice.

Hashim Sarkis, Curator of Venice's 17th Mostra Internazionale di Architettura and professor and dean of the school of architecture and planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, states that ‘in the context of widening political divides and growing economic inequalities, the biennale calls on architects to imagine spaces in which we can generously live together.

''...Together as human beings who, despite our increasing individuality, yearn to connect with one another and with other species across digital and real space; together as new households looking for more diverse and dignified spaces for inhabitation; together as emerging communities that demand equity, inclusion and spatial identity; together across political borders to imagine new geographies of association; and together as a planet facing crises that require global action for us to continue living at all.

Will 2020 be the turning point for a better future?
