Eva Le Roi & Pierre Burquel: de Sao Paulo Biennale
The illustrator Eva Le Roi and the architect Pierre Burquel have been selected among more than 740 applications to participate in the XII International Biennale of Architecture of São Paulo, which will take place from September to December 2019 at the Centro Cultural São Paulo (CCSP). Opening from September 10th to 13th.
With their project, "Alternative Insights: 5 stories of sao paulo", they will integrate todo dia / everyday / tous les jours, the main exhibition of the XII International Biennale of Architecture of São Paulo.
Their project proposes to examine through drawings the specific urban conditions of a city (São Paulo), where rapid growth and the overlap of multiple, even contradictory, dynamics have resulted in the creation of powerful urban landscapes.
The staggering growth of São Paulo and accumulation of what are often contradictory urban dynamics have created a complex urban landscape. Rather than an exhaustive study of this metropolitan environment, their project provides a narrative vision of five particular situations in the city of São Paulo.
Each situation is described with a diptych of complementary visuals. On the one hand, an axonometry which, using processes of selection, framing, isolation and compilation, offers a new perspective and reveals specific aspects of the location. On the other hand, an image depicting the daily, often imperceptible routines in the appropriate context.
