The Biennale College Architettura 2023
#First year running
-The College is open to graduate students, graduates under the age of 30, to early career academics (PhD candidates, researchers, assistant professors, tutors, teaching fellows, etc.) and emerging practitioners under the age of 35.
-The Biennale College Architettura will seek to complement and enrich the 18th International Architecture Exhibition, The Laboratory of the Future (20 May – 26 November, 2023) by exploring how to place the Exhibition’s central themes, decolonisation and decarbonisation, at the heart of architectural education.
-The process will culminate in a documentary, which will be screened as part of the Exhibition.
-International call will open from Monday, 9 January to Friday, 17 February 2023.
-Accepting applicants from as wide a range of built environment disciplinary backgrounds as possible (such as landscape architecture, urban design, interior architecture, design engineering or similar built environment practices),
-Preference will be given to applicants with strong design skills and interests, whether expressed through visual, text-based or performance media.
-Open to 50 participants
-Selection by the Director of the Architecture Department of La Biennale di Venezia, Lesley Lokko,
-The participants will work alongside a global cast of renowned practitioners, academics and built environment professionals on a range of design projects at different scales that map out new possibilities for architectural education in the coming decades.
The college will operate through a series of experimental studios, seminars, lectures and public reviews, drawing on the rich history of radical and transformative pedagogies that have surfaced in architectural education over the past fifty years.
-The College will thus provide an explorative space for graduate students, early career practitioners, and emerging teachers and academics, to critically and creatively engage with each other, with experts and with the two most pressing concerns of our time: decolonisation and decarbonisation.
