The 2021 Biennale Architettura opened in Venice over the weekend, where it will remain on view at the Arsenale, the Giardini, and Forte Marghera through November 21. Titled “How will we live together?”, the 17th edition of the International Architecture Exhibition includes 112 presentations from 46 countries, as well as a program of other exhibitions and events, presented in partnership with Rolex.
“The question, ‘How will we live together?’ is at once ancient and urgent,” said curator Hashim Sarkis. “It is indeed as much a social and political question as a spatial one. More recently, rapidly changing social norms, the political polarization between left and right, climate change, and the growing gap between labor and capital are making this question more urgently relevant and at different scales than before.”
