Catalonia will participate in the 17th edition of the Venice Architecture Biennale 2020, within the Eventi Collaterali program, with a project entitled AIRE/ARIA/AIR, curated by Olga Subirós and produced by the Ramon Llull Institute.
AIRE/ARIA/AIR defends architects’ role in the new ways of thinking about and mapping cities in light of the climate crisis which human action has caused on the planet.
The project asks architects to make a kind of architecture and urban design based on intangible data. Air, light and noise pollution make it essential to have new interdisciplinary work methodologies that combine architecture, urban planning, sustainability and life sciences. This cooperative project also advocates citizen empowerment and the need to return the ownership of big data back to the communal space.
