Thirteen offices in the Belgian pavilion at the Biennale Architettura 2016

When the BRAVOURE team was selected to create the Flemish entry for the Biennale Architettura 2016, it didn’t take long for them to decide to share the honour with other architects. BRAVOURE went on to select thirteen projects from thirteen architectural firms that share their passion for craftsmanship, the central theme of the Belgian pavilion exhibition.

Full-size replicas of a fragment from each project demonstrate the way in which craftsmanship contributes to contemporary architecture. The following projects are shown in the Belgian pavilion:

51N4E and ORG, the Organization for Permanent Modernity at the Arsenale
In addition to the national entry, the presence of home-grown architects extends well beyond the Giardini (the garden in Venice housing the national pavilions). On the invitation of curator Alejandro Aravena, the Brussels-based firms 51N4E and the Organization for Permanent Modernity are each exhibiting a sensational project in the Arsenale’s exhibition space (a former shipyard complex). 51N4E’s project is the TID tower in Albania, whilst ORG’s monumental contribution, which is entitled ‘Monument for an Open Society’, was designed on site.
