SNCDA: Luxemburg pavillion - Venice Biennale 2021
The project for the Luxembourg pavilion at the 17th Venice Architecture Biennale will be led jointly by LUCA and the architect Sara Noel Costa de Araujo, surrounded by a multidisciplinary team that will occupy the the Arsenale space from May.
Responding to the general theme of this 17th Biennale, ‘How will we live together?’, chosen by the curator Hashim Sarkis, the Luxembourg pavilion showcases a modular installation designed by Sara Noel Costa de Araujo (Studio SNCDA) in the Arsenales ‘Sale d’Armi’. This installation comprises several spaces of a different nature, including a space dedicated to the modular habitat and others to the exhibition, with artistic collaborations planned with Martine Feipel and Jean Bechameil as well as Koenraad Dedobbeleer and others at work on site. Because this project also includes a programme of curatorial residencies initiated by LUCA.
A publication to carry on the discussion
In addition to this installation and the residency programme, a collaboration with the Belgian architecture magazine Accattone is planned. Several articles will be published in the May issue whose topics explore ideas for a reversible habitat, visions to propose a new model enabling a common urban soil to be used again for new ways of living together. The participants in these contributions come from many different backgrounds. They include architects, urban planners of course, as well as artists, photographers, ecologists, developers and lawyers, etc.
