«With the aim of promoting the "desire" of architecture», President Baratta explained that this edition focuses on the question of space, the quality of space, open and free space. The fundamental parameter of reference is indicated with great clarity.
«The desire to create FREESPACE can become the specific individual characteristic of each individual project.
But space, free space, public space can also reveal the presence or absence of architecture, if we understand architecture to be "thinking applied to the space where we live, that we inhabit".
And the International Architecture Exhibition will offer us examples, teachings, and topics of discussion. Therefore, we are thankful to Farrell and McNamara for having accepted our invitation and for the choice, which adds an important link to the chain of Exhibitions held over the years.»
FREESPACE develops from the Central Pavilion (Giardini) to the Arsenale, and includes 71 participants. They are joined by those exhibited in two Special Sections: Close Encounter (16 participants) and The Practice of Teaching (13 participants).
