16th International Architecture Exhibition, one of the greatest architecture exhibitions in the world, starts on May 26th 2018 with two DCG alumni actively taking part in it. These are Tadej Bolta and Klara Bohinc, both working for Arrea Architecture, one of the most prominent architectural bureaus in Slovenia under the leadership of Maruša Zorec. In the 16-year long history of the biennale Arrea is the first Slovene bureau to be invited to partake.
The leading theme of the Biennale 2018 is freespace – a word which describes a generosity of spirit and a sense of humanity at the core of architecture’s agenda. Architecture opens up space in new ways, offering it to people, who may discover the essence of their existence through its use. The Biennale is divided in two sections. In the first one different countries participate with various installations, presentations and pavilions – all based on the biennale’s common theme. In the second section the invited architects or architectural bureaus from all over the world take part. This year 71 of them were invited by the curators of exhibition Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara, both from Ireland. The exhibition will remain open until November 25th 2018.
