Great curiosity this year at the Venice Biennale for the International Pavilion of the XV International Architecture Exhibition. With a relevant and pressing theme like Reporting from the Front (read also → Aravena explains his Biennale)how will the cultural and social conscience of the individual countries in the exhibition react? What is the idea explored for the occasion by each of the participants? We walked around the Arsenale and selected the pavilions which have more involved, surprised or excited us.

In an almost complete absence of aesthetic pleasure, and is not a critique, it must be admitted that this time to win were definitely the messages and the content rather than the image. Althought visual installations of effect were not missing.

First of all Darzanà: two Arsenals, a Vessel, the charming display of Turkey (picture above), who in order to support the abolition of restrictions and geographical boundaries, cultural and religious, he transmigrated physically and virtually a galley from the old shipyards in Turkey to the Venetian Arsenale. How? Through a spectacular reassembly of abandoned materials found in the port of Istanbul.

Space to Imagine, Room for Everyone is the response of Singapore (picture above) to the creation of new urban landscapes that can stimulate positive relationships between places, seen in the triple sense of home / City / earth, and its inhabitants, which consist mainly of individuals with its own identity, social, family and work. The installation, really poetic, using the suggestion of lanterns, decorated with poignant snapshots of everyday life rigidly aligned along a grid that recalls the urban planning.

The strangeness of the place and the urgent problem of migration is staged by the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (picture above) through the tunnel No Man's Land who plays on the enigmatic effects of spatial and visual perception, simulating the discomfort of not belonging to a place.

Chile (picture above) claims with great strength the ideas of the compatriot Aravena and the motto Against the tide that really goes against the tide and a number of projects for young undergraduates focused on the theme of local rural realities, made with the use of minimal resources and waste materials.

Kuwait (picture above) is banking on the future of connections that minimizes the physical fractures, religious and political. With the installation Between East and West, A Gulf imagine the nearly 300 islands in the Persian Gulf as a nodal element of an infrastructure network capable of promoting collective cultural and political exchanges.

Among the many ethical and social moral issues arising in this particular edition of the Biennale, a particular credit goes to Ireland (pictured above) for playing with Losing Myself, the disadvantaged spatial perception of Alzheimer's patients.

Jump in forgotten traditions for the Republic of China (pictured above) that with Daily Design, Tao Daily - Back to the Front ignored records the difficulties of living traditions with the colossal economic and urban growth of the last 30 years.
