Italy has selected “Taking Care, Designing for the Common Good” as the theme of their pavilion for the 2016 Venice Biennale, examining architecture as a community service that takes care of individuals, spaces, places, principles and resources. The exhibit will present 20 projects by Italian architecture firms that address a range of problems from health to housing, education and culture. The exhibit will be curated by a team from TAMassociati comprised of Massimo Lepore, Raul Pantaleo and Simone Sfriso.

Displaying the relationships that various commissioning bodies have with architecture – including public, private, associative and civic – the exhibition opens with photographs that exemplify the idea of common good in Italy. It will then progress into tested experiments in the field, presenting five original projects spearheaded by national associations committed to fighting marginalization across Italy.

“We want an architecture that is a driving force for new visions, a powerful medium of communication, an instrument by which the many urban peripheries will lay claim to rights, progress, opportunities and inclusion,” explain the TAMassociati team.

The TAKING CARE exhibition will have a low-cost installation, eliminating the superfluous, cutting costs and optimizing efficiency and reuse.
