Biennale svizzera del territorio بينالي سفيزيرا ديل تيريتوريو

Biennale svizzera del territorio

A nationwide event with international appeal born in 2016: an event that opens the doors of Villa Saroli to exponents of various disciplines, as well as to the general public. The event addresses the many different actors involved in the Baukultur process. With its open approach, La Bienniale contributes to the discussion on the social, economic, and territorial changes taking place within today’s society. The collective curatorship of the Biennale Svizzera del Territorio is Marc Frochaux, Ludovica Molo, Caspar Schärer, Cyrill Veillon, and Ariane Widmer Pham.

the topic: (non)finito

Exactly fifty years ago, in 1972, the Meadows Report spoke of the finitude of resources and the limits to growth. Despite some attempts to theorize an “end of history” (which never happened), we can only helplessly verify that our pace continues to accelerate and our dependence on raw materials and energy is increasing, plunging us into a succession of (climatic, health, political and humanitarian) crisis. In this context, we can no longer expect to create and preserve immutable, perfect, “finite” objects and landscapes. The finitude of resources implies the non-finitude of processes: time is now the raw material of the project. How can we establish an open culture of the built environment that is continuous, collective, and capable of constantly adapting forms and functions?
