The XX Chilean Architecture and Urbanism Biennial through its theme “Unpostponable Dialogues” invited academics, professionals, activists and the public sector from across the world to reflect on the matters that we have put aside in the construction of our cities and that are now pressing.

After a successful open call realized at the end of last year, in which over 400 proposals were received, it is clear that today it is fundamental to establish and reinforce the relationships between countries of the South that face similar problems, reconsider the relationships with the forces that govern our cities, and effectively include those that reside in the margins. 

A selection of projects from the open call along with projects from guests invited directly by the curatorial team conform the 218 works that will be exhibited in the international exhibition “Unpostponable Dialogues” that represent architects, academics, activists and government organizations from 26 countries.

Activism, recognised as an emergent force in the configuration of our built environment will be a fundamental axis of the “Unpostponable Dialogues” and for the first time will be part of the contributions presented in the international exhibition:

Under this theme we understand not only the voluntary actions of resistance of some individual idealists, but also citizen participation as a democratic exercise in all its forms and manifestations. To understand its dynamic, we won’t limit the presentation to the mere result of a determined action, but we will focus on the process, methods and indicators, so that that the exhibition will provide an active tool for the architects of the future.

Claudio Magrini, Activism and Valparaíso Territorialisation Curator

The works of the exhibition of the XX Architecture and Urbanism Biennial will be displayed within a landscape of portraits of Chileans and immigrants, captured by the photographer Jorge Brantmayer.

This Biennial looks to demonstrate that the phenomenon of architecture goes beyond the building and comes to make sense when it has an impact on people. For this reason a special selection of national and international participants will demonstrate the need to consider people before the architecture project. 

The work of special guests that will be presented in the exhibition will not only be of architects, and will have the mission of demonstrating the relevance of the need of integrated architectures in its widest sense, to maintain and promote new forms of exchange and dialogue between people… people before projects. This is about contributing to the environment in which we live with a transversal perspective about the dialogues that we cannot avoid, in relation to the surroundings in which we live and that we see in its state of deterioration for different reasons.

Rodrigo Tisi, Creative Director and Special Projects Curator

The participants of this space will use new technological means of representation in order to get to a wide public directly. With humour and theatricality the problems that people are experiencing in relation to the place and environment in which they live are explained. The Special Projects room will invite the public to look at the surroundings that belong to everyone, being global, from a critical and reflexive point of view, going beyond the conventional impacts of architecture.

Various artists interested in architecture and wider notions of the idea of space will be part of the exhibition. The work of great international and local architects will be presented, such as the recent Premio Nacional de Arquitectura 2017 winner, the Chilean architect working in Chiloé, Edward Rojas.

This year we will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Chilean Architecture and Urbanism Biennial and the curatorial team have organised a series of activities in parallel with the exhibits, within which they highlight a historical retrospective of the biennials in Chile, the project “Letters to the Mayor” led by Storefront for Art and Architecture and the consolidated workshop that this year will work as a direct bridge of communication and critical dialogue between architecture students, academics, public institutions and citizen collectives.

The XX Chilean Architecture and Urbanism Biennial is organized by the Colegio de Arquitectos de Chile in collaboration with the Asociación de Oficinas de Arquitectura and the Red de Escuelas de Arquitectura. Also collaborating are the Consejo Nacional de la Cultura y las Artes, Ministerio de Obras Públicas, Ministerio de Vivienda y Urbanismo, Ministerio de Energía, Subsecretaria de Desarrollo Regional y Administrativo del Ministerio del Interior, Intendencia Región Valparaíso, Intendencia Región Metropolitana, and the Oficina Nacional de Emergencia del Ministerio del Interior. The Empresas Socovesa and Antofagasta Minerals support the Biennial.
