The Greek Pavilion at the 2016 Venice Biennale will be hosting an exhibition titled #ThisIsACo-op, which underscores the role of collaboration in architecture. Through a series of displayed research and discussions, the exhibition aims to understand how architects may need to unite on different “fronts” of world crises, including the refugee crisis, the housing crisis, and the crisis of the architectural profession, among others.

This pavilion will host a series of “workshops and site-specific events” that will unite visitors into one cooperative network. It will become a place for meeting, discussion, and participation. The site will “provide a space for mobilizing collective architectural bodies, locally and internationally, as well as a place for developing claims and coordinating actions.”

Events hosted at the Greek Pavilion are organized into a tripartite structure: Syneleusis (assembly), Synergeia, and Symbiosis. Outside of the pavilion, the curatorial team, which is made up of members of the Association of Greek Architects, will host a series of events in both Venice and Greece, throughout the duration of the Biennale, which will be shown on screens in the pavilion.

The site also contains a reading room, and areas where documentaries about the multi-faceted crises architecture is currently facing can be seen. Through research, meetings, and discussions, #ThisIsACo-op aims to unite architects and find solutions through collaboration.
