VENICE BIENNALE 2016

SLETH participates with several projects as part of the Danish contribution ‘Art of Many’ an ‘The Right to Space’ at La Biennale di Venezia 2016. The exhibition is a ‘wunderkammer’ of recent architecture projects, presented as models in different scales and expression.

The selected SLETH projects all relate to or discuss the term “Human Modernism”. Projects that attempt to build a bridge between the visionary heritage of the Danish welfare state modernism and contemporary urban challenges.

The projects reflect a mindset accepting programmatic complexity. Urban solutions to new challenges, characterissed by mixed functions, transformation, high density, hybrid programs. A return to an honest expression of the elements of the architecture that creates the architectural framework for complex composite situations.
