ANNOUNCEMENT
OPEN CALL
1. Introduction
The 10 th São Paulo Architecture Biennale will be held from
September 28th to November 24th, 2013, curated by Guilherme
Wisnik, Ana Luiza Nobre and Ligia Nobre.
The theme of the X Bienal is “City: ways of making, ways of using”.
The aim of the X Bienal is to raise awareness regarding the city
and its numerous dimensions and scales, considering how its
construction and design are produced, as well as the various
ways its inhabitants use and appropriate it.
To reinforce this objective, the X Bienal de Arquitetura de São
Paulo conducts an open call for practices, works and proposals,
from which selected works will be exhibited in the Centro
Cultural São Paulo (CCSP) and the Platform of the Pedro I I metro
station, two strategic points of the broader network that
comprises the Biennial.
The general organization of the event is the responsibility of the
Instituto de Arquitetos do Brasil - Departamento São Paulo (IABSP) (Institute of Architects of Brazil, Sao Paulo Department); and
the executive production is realized by Arte3.
2. Concept
With the title “City: ways of making, ways of using”, the X Bienal de
Arquitetura de São Paulo offers a reflection on the complex
dynamics that build, destroy and rebuild the city day by day,
articulating the planning and design fields – taking place in the
“making” side – with the domain of “using”, which implies the
critical and creative participation of the citizen. In which ways
are we involved in the construction of public life and a desirable
public sphere in urban space?
This theme proposes a conscious engagement in all our
processes of building and using the cities, highlighting the
collective responsibility of a fundamentally ethical nature
implied by living in a society. What kind of urbanity do we want to
create in a country that is developing in the midst of a global
crisis? What models do we follow in a time when global
paradigms are falling apart?
In its 10th edition, the São Paulo Architecture Biennale changes
its format and concept. Instead of confining itself to a single
building in Ibirapuera Park, it will be held at locations spread
throughout the city. Reflecting on the contemporary city, the X
Bienal incorporates the urban issue into its own spatial
structure.
The selection of points composing the network followed two
basic criteria: the quality of the spaces, in their architecture-use
relationship; and their accessibility, that means, their
connectivity with public transport system. Thus it will be possible
to visit the entire exhibition via a multimodal system with the
metro as its backbone, complemented by a bike-share system.
3. Call for proposals
On the basis of the themes of the X Bienal de Arquitetura de São Paulo,
we invite practices, works and proposals with urban and public
dimension, though not necessarily in large scale and/or in public space.
For example, we are interested in practices and proposals (architectural,
urban, artistic, political) that subvert previously established orders, deal
with conflict situations and critically review uses of the city. There are no
disciplinary or programmatic limitations for the proposals to be
accepted.
The proposals will be selected by the curatorial team of the X
Bienal de Arquitetura de São Paulo, based on their relation to the
general theme and their feasibility in the exhibition spaces.
Updated information related to the subject of the biennial,
including selected texts by the curators, can be found online at
