The Pavilion Of Turkey Announces The Project To Be Exhibited At The Biennale Architettura 2020

September 23, 2019 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

One of the world’s leading architecture events, the 17th International Architecture Exhibition,
La Biennale di Venezia
will take place on 23 May–29 November 2020. Following an open-call and a two-stage evaluation, the Selection Committee has determined the project that will be exhibited at the Pavilion of Turkey, under the coordination of the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV).

Architecture as Measure, curated by Neyran Turan, will be presented at the Pavilion of Turkey in the 17th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia. Betsy Clifton, E. Ece Emanetoğlu, Ian Erickson, Samet Mor and Melis Uğurlu are taking part as curatorial assistants in the project.

Architecture as Measure seeks to elaborate on what architecture could contribute towards a new imagination of our environment beyond environmentalism and technological determinism in light of the current political crisis around climate change. Rather than limiting the role of climate change for design as a problem to solve, the project questions whether we can speculate on architecture as a measure through which the environment might be imagined. By providing an alternative perspective on the seemingly mundane and quotidian practices that surround and support architectural construction in Turkey, the project proposes another kind of architectural environmental imagination.

The Selection Committee chose Architecture as Measure among the applications made in response to an open-call, after a series of evaluation meetings. The Committee’s members are Aslı Çiçek, Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli, Prof. Dr. Ayşen Savaş, Han Tümertekin and Ertuğ Uçar.

The application process ended on 14 August, leaving 44 eligible projects to Committee’s evaluation. Architecture as Measure was chosen among the 5 projects that made their way to the final round.

The five projects that passed to the second stage of the selection process all had different and unique positive qualities. For representing Turkey at the Biennnale Architettura 2020, the Committee selected Architecture as Measure, a project by Neyran Turan and her team due to its fresh proposals for the relationship between climate change and architecture, its original structure, and for its approach to contemporary discussions from an architectural perspective.

Details regarding the Pavilion of Turkey at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia and Architecture as Measure project will be announced in 2020.
