Architecture exhibition in Italy showcases Macau’s urban life

The “17th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia – Exhibits from Macau, China” has launched in Venice, presenting a picture of cross-border life in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area.
In response to the theme of the Biennale, “How will we live together?”, the exhibition team showcases four works in different styles under the theme “Connectivities: Living beyond the boundaries – Macao and the Greater Bay Area,” in a bid to give an overview of the future urban landscape of Macau.
The theme also aims to reflect on the “symbiosis and challenges arising from the in-depth integration of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area,” according to a statement issued by the Cultural Affairs Bureau (IC).
The exhibition showcases the relationship between architecture, land reclamations, collective memory and urban life.
This year marks the fourth year that Macau architects have been organized to participate in the exhibition.
The exhibition team comprises the curator, Carlos Marreiros, and young local architects Ho Ting Fong, Che Chi Hong, Lao Man Si and Chan Ka Tat.
This edition of the Biennale, originally scheduled for May last year, was postponed to this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, with a total of 112 entries from 46 countries and regions, including Macau.
In order to comply with epidemic prevention and control efforts and deepen the public’s understanding of Macau’s architectural art, the works are presented at the Macau-China Pavilion in Venice through electronic media, and the physical works will be exhibited in the SAR later, for which the IC has not provided a specific date.
Organized by the Macao Museum of Art and co-organized by the Architects Association of Macau, the “17th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia – Exhibits from Macau, China” will run from May 22 to November 21. LV
