PHL TO JOIN 2018 VENICE ARCHITECTURE BIENNALE



The Philippine Pavilion takes part in this year's Architecture Biennale.

Titled “The City Who Had Two Navels,” the curatorial concept by Edson Cabalfin was selected among 12 proposals that were submitted to the coordinating committee in response to the open call for curatorial proposals for the Philippine participation at the 2018 International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia.

National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCAA) Chairman and Commissioner of the Philippine Pavilion Virgilio Almario deems the event is relevant as it can empower everyone to make better choices for the future of the cities and the people who occupy it.

The Philippine Pavilion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia is aimed to start a global conversation to see how the cities have transformed, how it is shaped by experiences from the past and by neoliberal agendas.
