Unfinished is the title of the exhibition organized in the Spanish Pavilion at the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale curated by the architects Iñaqui Carnicero and Carlos Quintans. The exhibition consists of about 67 project proposals and 7 photographic series which present a range of possible solutions to the problems that have emerged in Spain after the post-crisis housing boom. The Spanish Pavilion’s proposal is a response to the brief prepared by the Chilean architect Alejandro Aravena who asked for a presentation of characterful architecture able to solve the great challenges that the world – not just of architecture – is facing today.
Concepts such as reassignment, adaptation or re-appropriation, among others, appear in the projects selected by the Spanish Pavilion for the exhibition, offering a new vision of how Spanish architects have been thinking and reacting with the implementation of new strategies. The exhibition at the 2016 Architecture Biennial will be open from 26th May to 27th November 2016.
