The 2020 Venice Architecture Biennale is postponed!

The 17th Venice Architecture Biennale has been postponed, again, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and will now take place from 22 May to 21 November in 2021.

Curated by Lebanese architect and educator Hashim Sarkis, this iteration of the international architecture exhibition evolved this year around the question: How will we live together? – a theme that the biennale’s president Roberto Cicutto noted was “more relevant than ever” in this time of widespread lockdowns and social distancing. The 2020 Venice Architecture Biennale was initially postponed in early March from May to August due to a significant outbreak of the COVID-19 in northern Italy. The Veneto region, which Venice is the capital of, has itself recorded nearly 20,000 confirmed cases and 1,793 deaths.



TIME SPACE EXISTENCE features completed and ongoing projects, innovative proposals, and utopian dreams of architectural expressions. Through a wide selection of projects ranging from conceptual works, models, photographs, videos, sculptures, to site specific installations, each room will provide visitors information and inspiration on our surroundings. The exhibition was scheduled to open in parallel with Biennale Architettura on August 29th, 2020 and run for six months until February 16th, 2021 at Palazzo Bembo, Palazzo Mora and Giardini della Marinaressa, with press previews and opening parties in each location on August 27th and 28th. New dates are yet to be announced.

In addition, the European Cultural Centre presents the TIME SPACE EXISTENCE series,  a special collection of video interviews featuring masters in architecture. Ricardo Bofill, Balkrishna Doshi, Bjarke Ingels, Odile Decq, Toshiko Mori, and many others will explore the fundamental topics of time, space and existence through their personal and professional perspectives.

TIME SPACE EXISTENCE is going to take place in Venice at Palazzo Bembo, Palazzo Mora and the Giardini della Marinaressa. This year the ECC Italy venues will present, among others, projects by Abu Dhabi University, ATP architects engineers, Burckhardt+Partner, Christoph Hesse Architects, EADG, ETH Zurich and the Singapore University of Technology and Design in partnership with La Maison de l’Architecture de Genève and G8A Architects, Fay Jones School of Architecture at the Arkansas University, Henriquez Partners Architects, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), MCM Group, NI&Co. Architects + Daido University, LA SALLE College of The Arts - School of Fashion, Pratt Institute, Seoul Metropolitan Government in cooperation with Dominique Perrault, Snøhetta, TU Darmstadt, TU Delft, New York Institute of Technology; School of Architecture and Design, University at Buffalo, University of Pennsylvania, University of Texas at Arlington in collaboration with UNESCO Water Chair and many more.

Moreover, the European Cultural Centre is pleased to host at Palazzo Mora the Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA) presented by the Mies van der Rohe Foundation, official collateral event of La Biennale di Venezia.

The final list of the participants will be announced soon.
