Madrid May 2018. Under the title becoming, the exhibition, which has been curated by the architect Atxu Amann, opens the doors to actions, discourses and productions from architecture students developed between 2012 and 2017.

After winning the Golden Lion award at the previous Biennial for Unfinished – a project by architects Carlos Quintáns and Iñaqui Carnicero that explored the reinvented architecture of the construction crisis – the Spanish Pavilion now addresses the future of architecture from the point of researchers.

becoming looks to the future, and a common ground of training in schools, which extends to other learning spaces and at times creates dialogue with other disciplines.

From a starting point of 55 adjectives that qualify architecture and were presented in the Open Call, becoming provides a space for heterogeneous proposals and reflections on architecture and vindication of learning environments as a space for criticism and architectural creation.

Among the eclectic selection inside the pavilion you will see proposals that critically review the past, others that redefine everyday spaces of the present, and those that imagine a future based on sustainability, well-being and social justice, as well as visions that fuse the real world and the virtual one. For example, it will be the first time that the pavilion shows, doctoral theses on architecture.

becoming has also afforded specific opportunities within the framework of the Biennial. The first of these was to invite student collectives to present a project that transformed the exterior space of the Spanish Pavilion. The winning intervention can be seen during the Biennial, and will remain in the pavilion once it is over.

Within this first specific open call, the proposal of a second group of students to occupy the rear space of the pavilion (traditionally used for storage) was accepted. It will now become the exit of the exhibition. It is a textile installation that reflects the concepts that have inspired the exhibition.

Another open call, Out of the Box Celebration, was made in partnership with the pavilions of Belgium and Holland. They called for proposals for the space between these three pavilions. The winner, selected from more than 100 ideas, is the Europa installation. Submitted by Belgian students, it proposes the eradication of divisions between countries and pavilions.

The open and liberal purpose of the Spanish Pavilion includes a Declaration of Intent the curators have assigned to the Biennale, and the Irish architects Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara. Under the concept of the Freespace, the curators encourage us to revise ways of thinking and new ways of seeing the world, devising solutions where architecture provides well-being and dignity to all the citizens of our fragile planet.

The exhibition at the Biannale Architettura 2018 in Venice will be open from May 26 to November 25, 2018.
