As we have often said, Architecture makes us more aware individuals; it helps us become citizens, not just consumers; it stimulates us to consider the indirect effects of our actions; it helps us understand more fully the importance of public goods and of free goods. It helps us develop a more all-around vision of welfare. And lastly, Architecture helps us to conserve resources and to give ourselves a modicum of happiness. Thus, the gaze of the curator and the Exhibition ranges even further afield. Architecture becomes the reference point of a vast interdisciplinary commitment and of a vast cultural and political commitment. This is a time in which many could take advantage of the ensuing fears, worries, and changes to promote ultra-defensive campaigns.

The 17th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice was announced as one of the most politically committed in recent years. Certainly the invited architects and the 34 nations participating in the Biennale will have worked out their projects, for some time, well before the recent health crisis, but right now we ask ourselves: What role does the architect play in imagining virtual collective geographies? What can he do in connecting people within the digital space? No, not cultural contamination -passepartout so much abused in recent times- but the danger of real contagion , from one individual to another living together.
Two people can be as completely different as it is possible to be and respect each others' beliefs. After a certain point "support" stops being supportive and turns into enabling - enabling of his depression, his anxiety, his reluctance to reflect deeply on who he is and what he wants out of life, and worst of all, my "support" ensures his continuation into a career that will not ultimately make him or me happy. Most of us were suckled on that teat too. Don't think your life is going to be all rainbows and great lifestyles.
