Creating value through reusing the materials from last biennale – 2016 venice biennale installation by Alejandro Aravena

Renchi Space is excited to learn about the massive recycled steel installation at 2016 Venice Biennale’s main venue curated  by People’s architect Alejandro Aravena (2016 Pritzker Prize Winner). The architect’s body of work and TED talk demonstrated tremendous value on social impact work through architectural practice, an approach emphasizing both intelligence and intuition in design process, and aspiration to create both “think-tank” and “do-tank” demanded by professional practice nowadays.

On the occasion of his nomination, Alejandro Aravena declared:

“There are several battles that need to be won and several frontiers that need to be expanded in order to improve the quality of the built environment and consequently people’s quality of life. This is what we would like people to come and see at the 15th International Architecture Exhibition: success stories worth to be told and exemplary cases worth to be shared where architecture did, is and will make a difference in those battles and frontiers”.

 “The 15th International Architecture Exhibition will be about focusing and learning from architectures that through intelligence, intuition or both of them at the same time, are able to escape the status quo. We would like to present cases that, despite the difficulties, instead of resignation or bitterness, propose and do something. We would like to show that in the permanent debate about the quality of the built environment, there is not only need but also room for action”.
