Intervowen explores interactions and transitions between households and environments in Venice

Peruvian architectural studio leonmarcial arquitectos has presented an exhibition that explores different interactions and relationships between households and environments at the 2021 Venice Architecture Biennale

The exhibition, called Intervowen, is displayed at the Arsenale venue as part of the "As New Households” exhibition space. 

The installation, designed by Alexia León and Lucho Marcial of leonmarcial arquitectos, is composed of giant fragmented and rotated blocks made of 2,000 mobile Panguana blocks and metal poles that reflect the language of buildings at a different scale.

Aiming to create a new dialogue through architecture, the installation rethinks together our basic building blocks as drivers of change.

"Re-interpreting the lines of domestic private property which often restrict one’s notion of households leads to a transformation at the broader, public scale, one which allows for the construction of open structures that provide more equitable and dynamic living opportunities," stated leonmarcial arquitectos at the Venice Biennale's website

Interwoven is designed as a spatial fragment "focusing on temporal transitions and interactions between households that dissolve outside-inside and public-private boundaries, where people interact and coexist."

In a sneak peek video, Alexia León says that "we really believe that basic building blocks can reshape the way we interact and co-exsit." 

"Panguana wood fabrics and artisan's knowledge attached to it, together through architecture can give dynamic possibilities for equitable change." 

"Integration is a mutual challenge at the Venice Architecture Biennale. It's a great opportunity to be engaged with our future with our planet."

Through the installation, visitors are able to create new configurations and create their own structures as they wish since the installation fosters new dynamics for collaborative approaches to construct together.
