As per the above, the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism of Montenegro announces an open, international, single-stage, non-anonymous competition for the selection of a team of authors, a concept and content of the Montenegrin exhibit at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice in 2020.
The subject matter of the competition is the selection of a team of authors, a conceptual design and the content of the exhibit in the Montenegrin Pavilion at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice, 2020.
Looking for universal, advanced metaphors, algorithms, paradigms and concepts for living in a community assumes a transdisciplinary-oriented multidisciplinary team.
A team of authors is expected to propose a concept design and the content of the exhibit in the premises of the Montenegrin Pavilion (Malipiero Palace), which will be used as a platform for implementing the project for the Montenegrin representation at the Biennale.
The objective of the competition is the unconventional response to the theme of the Biennale articulated towards a transactive spatial perception, which engages inter/transactive memory in finding an advanced metaphor or a concept in response to the topic of the Biennale. In the exhibit’s focus is a dynamic spatial-physical installation which is subtle and intriguing at the same time. The emphasis is not on local but on universal context, i.e. its glocal “use” rendering spatial values from the Montenegrin context metaphorical.
The competition is organized digitally.
