This book is published on the occasion of the ‘UNLESS EVER PEOPLE / CARITAS FOR FREESPACE’ exhibition in the Central Pavilion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. architecten de vylder vinck taillieu were invited to Biennale Architettura 2018, curated by Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara, to present the project CARITAS as part of the general theme ‘FREESPACE’. This project was realized in a remarkable collaboration with commissioner KARUS, who was heavily involved in the process, and with the guidance of BAVO, an independent research office focused on the political and socio-economic aspects of art, architecture and spatial planning. Participation was the key to this project, in which everyone involved became a co-creator. This publication is a production of the Flanders Architecture Institute and forms a next step for the project, which is continuously looking for new insights in the use of space for care – whichever way it goes.
