The 12th International Architecture Exhibition, with the title of “People meet in architecture”, directed by Kazuyo Sejima and organized by la Biennale di Venezia under the presidency of Paolo Baratta will be open to the public from Sunday 29th August to Sunday 21st November 2010 in the Giardini, Arsenale and in various locations throughout Venice. The preview will take place on August, 26th, 27th, 28th 2010.
After a series of editions of the Architecture Biennale directed by eminent critics and historians, this Sector is once again in the hands of an architect, Kazuyo Sejima. The first woman to direct the Architecture Sector of the Biennale, Sejima has recently been awarded the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize 2010 (together with Ryue Nishizawa).

The exhibition People meet in architecture will be laid out in the Palazzo delle Esposizioni della Biennale (Giardini) and in the Arsenale, forming a single itinerary, with 48 participants: firms, architects, engineers and artists from around the world.
“The 2010 Architecture Biennale should be a reflection on architecture – says Director Kazuyo Sejima. The twenty-first century has just started. Many radical changes are taking place. In such a rapid-changing context, can architecture clarify new values and a new lifestyle for the present? Hopefully, this show will be a chance to experience the manifold possibilities of architecture, as well as to account for its plurality of approaches, each one of them being a different way of living”.

Domus with the support of Valcucine will be at the 12th International Architecture Biennale with two events in the Kitchen Monument, a transparent bubble designed by the Berlin architecture studio Raumlabor, which will be a venue for debates, videos and round-table conferences.

Here are the events:

E-Creative is the European network for the development of the relation art-business, an international platform made by institutions, universities, artists and ‘Made in Itlay’ firms, joint in a team to create projects in the fields of arts, entrepreneurship and technological innovation.

Art against the crisis: the art is a transformation engine in urban contexts, an innovation factor for the firms, and a radar to suggest answers on the topic of environmental sustainability.

The meeting in June, from 3rd to 5th, is the first appointment of a list of activities to develop the topic art-busines, in view of the European project that the network will present in October 2009.
The debate will be diffused on the web to be enriched by contribution and proposals from the public and the online press, through the pages created on social networks:
– A live blogging system, featuring news, videointerviews and photos, diffused on the main social networks, and a live streaming broadcast of the meetings through the webtv Glomera will allow the public to follow the meetings online and to interact with the debate;
– The interactive game The Future: a better place, by Log607, will collect suggestions for a sustainable future. It will be based on the debate opened during the meetings and on the social networks: it will gather, until October 2009, suggestions, proposals, projects, which will be published and finally will feed the European project.
