Due to the worldwide pandemic situation that erupted in 2020, the Venice Biennale 2020 declared a one-year hiatus. Finally, the 17th International Architecture Exhibition —”How will we live together?”— curated by Hashim Sarkis, Dean of MIT’s School of Architecture and Planning, is announced to take place between May 22 and November 21, 2021.

The 2021 edition of La Biennale di Venezia will include 112 participants in competition from 46 countries, with 60 national participants in the Giardini, at the Arsenale, and in the historic city center of Venice, Italy. Furthermore, the international exhibition will welcome three countries, being part of the most important architectural biennale of the world for the first time: Grenada, Iraq, and Uzbekistan.

With a growing delegation from Africa, Latin America, and Asia, the 17th International Architecture Exhibition is organized into five scales. Moreover, a contribution by five international participating architects who designed a project dedicated to children’s play will be on exhibit at Forte Marghera.
