Details Revealed About the Content of the Spanish Pavilion at the 2016 Venice Biennale

Details Revealed About the Content of the Spanish Pavilion at the 2016 Venice Biennale

The curators of the Spanish Pavilion have revealed the selected material which will be exhibited at the 2016 Venice Biennale. The content is a response to Alejandro Aravena's thematic directive for the Biennale, entitled "Reporting from the Front," in which he invites each country to share experiences and moments of crisis that architecture has experienced in recent years.

Under the title "Unfinished," the projects selected by Iñaqui Carnicero and Carlos Quintans reveal the architects’ response to the economic and construction crisis in Spain over recent years, through virtues that can either become strategies or creative speculations, capable of "subverting the past condition into a positive contemporary action."

The exhibition is divided into four areas dealing with the pavilion’s theme: seven photographic series, 55 selected works, twelve selected entries from the open competition, and ten interviews will provide the graphic and intellectual content. Each area will generate synergies with each other, while the whole exhibition revolves around the central space which will be capable of being transformed in order to accommodate different activities.

The photographic series shape the common imaginary of the result of the constructions enterprise in Spain some years back. Located in the central space, the photographs show the reality and the result of what once was the largest 'edificatory' enterprise in Spanish history. The 7 photograph series will make the visitor reflect about the outcome of this construction frenzy and the relationship it had with the financial crisis.

7 PHOTOGRAPH SERIES

1. "Arquitectura y resistencia" / Author: Nicolás Combarro. 
2. "Spanish Dream" / Author: Cadelas verdes. 
3. "Standstill Architecture" / Author: Iñaki Bergera. 
4. "Landscapes under 30: Transitional Space" / Author: Miguel Fernández Galiano. 
5. "Landscape Under Construction" / Author: Alfonso Batalla. 
6. "Re-edificatoria" / Author: Adrià Goula. 
7. "Nación rotonda" / Author: Miguel Álvarez, Esteban García, Guillermo Trapiello, Rafael Trapiello. 

The side rooms will be used to exhibit the 55 selected works out of a total of 550 submissions. These projects do not deal with neither scale nor with their situation but with the strategies which architects put into play as a response to the built environment as explained before. Far from being a style, the exhibition confirms that this processes and methods have resulted in new architectures which have been able to adapt to new economic, social and environmental demands. These projects are catalogued into the following categories:

CONSOLIDATE, REAPPROPRIATION, INFILL, ADAPTABLE, REASSIGNMENTS, NAKED, GUIDES, PERCHING, PAVEMENTS.

The architectural graphic display will finish with the exhibition of the results of the open compentiion held by the pavilion which aimed to search for unpublished projects which respond to the theme proposed. These proposals could be located in real situations or could also be developed in generic architectural situations that deal with the recognizable circumstances in the present juncture. Out of the 108 submissions the jury, composed by Iñaqui Carnicero and Carlos Quintáns as curators of the exhibitions and by the pavilion’s scientific committee (Santiago de Molina, Jacobo García-Germán and Ángel Martínez García-Posada) made a first selection of 20 projects. Out of these finalists, the jury chose 8 winners and 4 mentions that will not only be part of the exhibition but whose authors will explain their projects in public as part of the pavilion’s activities:
