Architecture Biennale 2016

On the occasion of the Architecture Biennale 2016, that will take place in the Giardini and the Arsenale and in various othervenues in Venice, PDG Arte Communications can provide a wide range of exhibition spaces in Venice and all the necessary services to organise an exhibition 

PDG Arte Communications manages different locations in Venice such as prestigious Palaces, like Palazzo Lezze that for instance registered 58.000 visitors during the last Art Biennale or Palazzo BarbaroCa’ Garzoni and venues close to the Venice Biennale like the spaces behind the Chiesa della Pietàor many others buildings just opposite the entrance of the Arsenale.

The 15th International Architecture Exhibition will be held  from May 28th to November 27th 2016 (Preview May 26th and 27th). The title chosen by curator Alejandro Aravena for the 15th International Architecture Exhibition is: REPORTING FROM THE FRONT. 

“REPORTING FROM THE FRONT will be about bringing to a broader audience, what is it like to improve the quality of life while working on the margins, under tough circumstances, facing pressing challenges. Or what does it take to be on the cutting edge trying to conquer new fields. 

We will present cases and practices where creativity was used to take the risk to go even for a tiny victory because when the problem is big, just a one-millimeter improvement is relevant; what may be required is to adjust our notion of success, because achievements on the frontlines are relative, not absolute.

We are very aware that the battle for a better built environment is a collective effort that will require everybody’s force and knowledge. That is why we would like this Biennale to be inclusive, listening to stories, thoughts and experiences coming from different backgrounds: The Architects, The Civil society, The Leaders, The National Pavilions.”
