In the context of widening political divides and growing economic inequalities, we call on architects to imagine spaces in which we can generously live together.
在政治分歧扩大和经济不平等加剧的背景下,我们提议建筑师构想可以宽容地共同生活的空间。

劳力士自2014年第四度支持威尼斯国际建筑双年展。这不仅是劳力士对艺术及文化领域承诺的一部分,此活动亦汇聚各种反映时代变革的构思。

建筑双年展自1980年一直是最大型及最具影响力的论坛,让建筑师提出推动世界变得更美好的大胆构思。 第17届国际建筑展于5月22日至11月21日举行,适逢疫症大流行在世界各地带来社会变革,影响民众对地方以至生活和工作方式的看法。

第17届国际建筑展由杰出建筑师哈希姆・萨基斯(Hashim Sarkis)担任策展人,他也是美国麻省理工学院建筑与规划学院的院长。萨基斯教授以八个字概括建筑双年展与社会及环境可持续发展相关的提问主题:我们如何共同生活?

他解释:“我们需要全新的空间概念。在政治分歧扩大和经济不平等加剧的背景下,我们提议建筑师构想可以宽容地共同生活的空间。” 他说这个引导构思亦反映“年轻建筑师萌生的行动主义,以及建筑业为应对这些挑战而作出的急剧改变”。

Rolex is supporting the Biennale Architettura for the fourth time since 2014 as Exclusive Partner and Official Timepiece as part of its wider commitment to the arts and culture.

Beginning on 22 May and running through to 21 November, the 17th International Architecture Exhibition takes place at a pandemic-induced point of societal change all over the world that has affected how people think about places and ways of living and working.

This year International Architecture Exhibition is curated by the eminent architect, Hashim Sarkis, who is Dean of MIT’s School of Architecture and Planning in the United States. Professor Sarkis has encapsulated the Biennale Architettura’s questioning theme in five words directly related to social and physical sustainability: How will we live together?

“We need a new spatial contract,” he explains. “In the context of widening political divides and growing economic inequalities, we call on architects to imagine spaces in which we can generously live together.” He says this guiding idea also reflects the “emerging activism of young architects and the radical revisions being proposed by the profession of architecture to take on these challenges”.
