The Pavilion of Spain presents “Uncertainty,” a selection of actions that hybridize and expand the competences of architecture to face new social demands at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition Venice Biennale 2021. Commissioned by Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (MITMA), State Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID) and Acción Cultural Española (AC/E), the exhibiton blurs imposed disciplinary and conceptual boundaries that have ended up becoming principles. It creates open concepts from realities previously perceived as antagonistic.
Curators Domingo González, Andrzej Gwizdala, Fernando Herrera and Sofía Piñero urges us to open our certainties, by focusing on exploring their limits and showcasing the actions that allow different dimensions of reality to become open, dynamic, and adaptable processual elements. It shows a future in which uncertainty, as a design strategy, has become the primary tool to transform our processes and social models, breaking individualism in favor of coexistence.
