Homes for Luxembourg

Luxembourg Pavilion

The Luxembourg Pavilion opened its doors to the public in Venice on the 22nd of May 2021, with a silent opening.

The Pavilion hosts the "Homes for Luxembourg" exhibition as well as a unique program of curatorial residences complemented by a series of events taking place in Venice and Luxembourg.

The architecturebiennale.lu website allows everyone, wherever they are, to follow the life of the Pavilion and take part in the debate.

The Ministry of Culture and the LUCA Luxembourg Center for Architecture, in collaboration with the network of National Pavilions, plan to organize a joint weekend of vernissages this autumn, in Venice, when it is possible to travel safely again.

  • On the occasion of the opening to the public of the Luxembourg Pavilion at the 17. Mostra Internazionale di Architettura in Venice on May 22, we invite you to listen to the debate entitled "Homes for Luxembourg" co-organised by the Luxembourgish radio station 100.7 and the architecture magazine Accattone.

About the exhibition

The first pandemic of the Anthropocene hardly left a stone unturned. Where decades of promoting the concept of sustainability failed, the spreading virus succeeded in the wink of an eye. The collective experience of being catapulted into a way of living within a limited radius, minimal contacts, and reduced consumption provoked a dramatic shakeup of mindsets. It set a spotlight on the relationship between architecture and land, urban and rural, interior and exterior, home and work/study, built environment and nature.

Referring to the official motto of this year’s Biennale, How will we live together?, the Luxembourg contribution to the 17th Architecture Biennale comes with an exhibition that reflects on these dualities. The modular installation in the Sale d’Armi and several contributions to the architecture magazine Accattone explore ways of reversible living, offering a vision for a model of repurposing land as new urban commons, providing new forms of togetherness. The contributors to this exhibition come from diverse disciplines, and include architects, artists, authors, urban planners, photographers, ecologists, developers, lawyers...

The pavilion hosts working spaces for the participants of Luxembourg’s first ever curatorial residency programme at the Biennale di Venezia. Emerging curators, mediators, scenographers, authors, bloggers, and activists in the field of architecture have the possibility to explore this year’s Architecture Biennale, get a first-hand overview of the current state of international discourse, gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities of contributing to the world’s most important architecture exhibition, enhance their professional abilities, and establish important contacts and develop ideas for own projects.
