Venice Architecture Biennale 2023: a pavilion designed by Studio Muoto
The 18th International Architecture Exhibition will be open to the public from Saturday 20 May to Sunday 26 November at the Giardini, the Arsenale, around national pavilions, and Forte Marghera. The Exhibition, organized by la Biennale di Venezia and curated by Lesley Lokko, will be focusing on themes like land, borders, migration, cultural identity, globalization and diasporic ties.
France will be represented by Muoto studio, an architecture firm founded by Gilles Delalex and Yves Moreau, & Georgi Stanishev, architect, set designer and professor at ENSA in Paris–Malaquais, with « Ball Theater / La fête n’est pas finie », a spectacular sound architecture, responding to the theme of this 2023 edition: « The laboratory of the Future ».
The project is presented as a light and modular sphere, conceived as a laboratory of identities. It assumes a poetic and utopian dimension that questions the growth concept. It can be interpreted both as a place of divination of the future and as a disco ball that involves sound, space and the body. Animated by a monthly cycle of workshops-residencies-occupations, it will stage a plurality of voices and stories. It is a theatre open to the world and its globalized challenges.
