HUMAN TOPOGRAPHIES_ VENICE BIENNALE

 

The proposal focuses on two prevailing ‘frontiers’ that architects of the Island of Cyprus struggle with and battle against on a daily basis at multiple levels: Crisis and Division.

The Pavilion will eloquently illustrate how these battles are fought through architectural works or projects found in the PUBLIC and PRIVATE Realm, and how BLURRED examples that exist on the fringe – (which are created through organized or unorganized public events in urban spaces), lead to the creation of new emerging and highly potent voices.
