The Architecture Book Fair is the first transnational virtual book fair dedicated to publishing and divulgation of architecture and its intersection with politics, technology, economy and social issues. The books and publications selected for this year answer to the theme “Landscapes of Care”.
Quaderns Biennale, 21: Air/Aria/Aire is a special issue of the Quaderns, magazine of the COAC, published in the occasion of the presentation of the project Air/Aria/Aire promoted by The Institut Ramon Llull at the 17th Venice Architecture Biennale Venice in 2021.
The title of the 2021 Venice Architecture Biennale, chosen by its curator, Hashim Sarkis, is a question: “How will we live together?” As curator of Catalonia’s participation and guest editor of the issue of Quaderns Biennale, 2021: AIR/ARIA/AIRE, Olga Subirós reformulates it as “How will we survive together?”, a question answered with a project in which architects, urban planners and landscape architects are invited to explore and act on the invisible matter between what is built: air. Air is the point of convergence of the major present-day crises: the climate crisis and the public health crisis due to air pollution in cities, interconnected with each other and also with the COVID-19 pandemic.
