Penezic and Rogina architects present in the main exhibition at the International Architecture Exhibition, Venice
Croatian most awarded architects Penezic and Rogina are invited by Biennale’s curator Aaron Betsky to produce a site specific installation that will occupy 270 sq m in Corderie Arsenale as a part of main exhibition for the Venice Biennale.
The main exhibition is taking place in the historic venue of the Corderie Arsenale from the 14th of September until 23rd of November 2008. Penezic and Rogina architects will exhibit together with the most influential cognitive and experimental architectural elite like Herzog & de Meuron, Zaha Hadid, Morphosis, Coop Himmelb(l)au and Frank Gehry.
The installation 'Who's afraid of Big Bad Wolf in Digital Age', by which Penezic and Rogina Architects will present themselves, is composed of three series of elements in multiple varieties that symbolizes architectural transformation from a traditional view of architecture as a shelter/condition towards architecture in digital age where architecture will be viewed as a medium - how can we reveal, appropriate, and domesticate those systems, usually of a technological nature, that control our daily lives, in such a way that we can be at home in the modern world?
Beside the installation that will be built especially for this occasion Penezic and Rogina will also introduce their Manifesto that presents their critical vision of today’s architecture with an eye on the future offering action points to follow.
