The volume "Spaziale. Everyone belongs to everyone else" brings together the voices of all the protagonists involved in the Italian Pavilion at the 18th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.
Nine practices led by young designers – in collaboration with advisors from other fields of the creative industries – were invited to develop pioneer projects in as many locations throughout Italy. The outcomes, presented simultaneously in Venice and disseminated across the country, address an agenda of pressing issues for architecture: open questions on the contemporary scene, ascribable to the scenario of the – not only ecological – transition of our time; The volume also features interviews between the working groups and the curators which explore the various design approaches; photographic essays lead us on the discovery of the sites of intervention; contributions from the incubators highlight the aspirations and contingencies of the local communities, and finally, four in-depth texts – by Mirko Zardini, Charlotte Malterre-Barthes, dpr-barcelona and Nina Bassoli – frame the Pavilion project within the broader context of the discipline.
Fosbury Architecture (FA) is a collective of design and research founded in 2013 by Giacomo Ardesio (1987), Alessandro Bonizzoni (1988), Nicola Campri (1989), Claudia Mainardi (1987) and Veronica Caprino (1988). FA is a spatial practice interpreting architecture as a tool that mediates between collective and individual needs; expectations and resources; sustainability and pragmatism; environment and human beings. FA is a research group aiming at expanding the boundaries of the discipline, redefining its role, and rethinking its production processes in the perspective of current challenges. FA was curator of the monographic exhibition Characters at Magazin in Vienna (2022), as well as of Urban Center at the Centro Pecci in Prato (2021–2022) and Milan 2030 at the Triennale Milano (2019). The collective has participated in numerous national and international Architecture Biennales, including Lisbon (2019), Versailles (2019), Chicago (2017) and Venice (2016). The collective edited, with Alterazioni Video, the publication INCOMPIUTO: The Birth of a Style (2018) supported by the then MIBACT (the current Ministry of culture) and awarded an honorable mention for the Compasso d'Oro 2020.
