The concept and title Walls of Air was conceived as a response to the theme of Freespace proposed by curators Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara in order to provoke questions about: 1. the different sorts of walls that construct, on multiple scales, the Brazilian territory; 2. the borders of architecture itself in relation to other disciplines.

Therefore, a reflection began on how much Brazilian architecture and its urban developments are, in fact, free. Without the ambition of reaching an answer, but hoping to open the conversation to a large and diverse public, we chose to shed light on processes that often go unnoticed due to their nature or scale. The immaterial barriers built between people or neighborhoods, and the processes of urbanization in Brazil on a continental scale are examples of questions we considered.

Brazil Announces Exhibition Theme for 2016 Venice Biennale

08:00 - 8 April, 2016

Responding to curator Alejandro Aravena's theme "Reporting from the front," the Fundação Bienal de São Paulo has selected Washington Fajardo to present an exhibition titled “JUNTOS.” The project for the Brazilian pavilion will highlight stories of people who have fought to achieve changes in institutional passivity in Brazil's big cities. They have created architecture within slow processes, bringing stable solutions in a politically tumultuous territory. According to the curator, “the exhibition is a composition of these pathways and partnerships, where activism meets architects and architecture, becoming a magnet in the preparation of a new space.”

With the participation of 96 pavilions from diverse countries around the world, the Expo Milan 2015 tackles one of the most pressing global issues -- alimentation -- through its theme “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life.”

The Brazilian Pavilion, designed by Studio Arthur Casas and Atelier Marko Brajovic, was considered one of the most attractive pavilions by the thousands of visitors who have passed through the Expo so far. Featuring a large open space traversed by an elevated net on which visitors can walk, the pavilion is as “as porous as the Brazilian culture,” and creates a pathway above plants native to the country.

Below is a beautiful series of photographs of the pavilion taken by Fernando Guerra, a partner at Últimas Reportagens, along with his brother Sérgio Guerra.

Video: Inside the Brazil Pavilion at Milan Expo 2015

08:00 - 20 July, 2015

Brazilian architect Raphael França has shared with us his video featuring the Brazilian Pavilion at the Milan Expo 2015, produced in a collaboration with Japanese photographer Takeshi Miyamoto.

Internal and external images show the public interacting with the pavilion, while detail shots present the multitude of textures and materials that form the building. The juxtaposition of the moving images, along with Lívio Tragtenberg's strong soundtrack, transport the viewer to the Milan Expo and to the experience of walking on the organic surface.

The Brazilian Pavilion at the Milan Expo 2015 was designed by Studio Arthur Casas + Atelier Marko Brajovic and can be seen in more detail here.
