Philippines: Structures of Mutual Support

The Philippine Pavilion is exhibiting “Structures of Mutual Support” at the the 17th International Architecture Exhibition Venice Biennale this year, curated by Framework Collaborative. The exhibition explores how the principles of mutual support would shape architecture by involving people directly in the determination of values embedded in it.

Through a series of workshops based on bayanihan, the Filipino tradition of mutual support, the community and architects planned, designed and built a community library and conflict-resolution space. Much like bayanihan was used traditionally to move a house from one village to the other, the building has traveled to Venice for the duration of the exhibition before returning back home to the village. The curators and architects at Framework Collaborative, Sudarshan V. Khadka Jr. and Alexander Eriksson Furunes, worked in collaboration with the members of GK Enchanted Farm community for the exhibition.
