  • CALL: XII International Architecture Biennale of São Paulo

    Continuing the practice initiated at the XII International Architecture Biennale of São Paulo, IABsp holds an official contest to select a co-curatorial proposal for the 13th International Biennial of Architecture in São Paulo so that, in a democratic way, it is possible to understand what are the fundamental debates, dialogues and criticisms at this moment.

    The proposal should formulate a curatorial outline for the 13th Biennale based on the central theme – RECONSTRUCTION – and the guiding principles launched by the Organizing Committee. Individuals or groups of any nationality or country of residence may apply, provided that the legal representative of the proposing team is a Brazilian citizen, formally established and domiciled in Brazil.
