Spain: Becoming

Commissioner: Ministero de Fomento AECID, Agencia Espanola de Cooperación Internacional para el Desarrollo-Ministero de Asuntos Exteriores y de Cooperación AC/E, Acción Cultural Espanola

Curator: Atxu Amann

Located among leraning environments of Architecture and continuing with the appropriate and temporary character of the previous Spanish pavilion UN-finished, „becoming“ makes an allusion to a vector of the future, with a common educational background at University that extends to other learning experiences in space and time, in dialogue with other disciplines.

 

Belgium: Eurotopie

Commissioner: Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles

Curators: Traumnovelle & Roxane Le Grelle

Eurotopie addresses the issues and challenges tackled by the European Union. Despite being the E.U’s principal territorial, physical and symbolic anchorage, the European Quarter in Brussels seems in no way to contribute to a collective European identity. The relationship of the European Quarter with its host city, however, is ambiguous.

 

Netherlands: Work, Body, Leisure

Commissioner: Het Nieuwe Instituut

Curator: Marina Otero Verzier

The Dutch Pavilion addresses the spatial configurations, living conditions and notions of the human body engendered by disruptive changes in labour ethos and conditions. The project seeks to foster new forms of creativity and responsibility within the architectural field in response to emerging technologies of automation.
