CAMPUS STRUCTURE

During the 17th lnternational Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, Future School manifests within the Giardini in the form of a physical campus, hosting exhibitions, workshops, installations and conversations. A series of core commissions adds sound and movement, food and drink, and even a Code of Conduct for all participants. This Venice campus connects to other Future School campuses globally and to Future School Online, a new digital environment.

The aspiration to cultivate cross-disciplinary, interactive engagement of all kinds is reflected in the flexible use of the pavilion site-specifically the inclusion of informal domestic spaces that gently but resolutely dissolve the boundaries between learning and living. These include an open kitchen, a circular lounge, and a retreat room constructed entirely in hanji, a traditional, handmade Korean paper.

This is also the driving torce behind Future School Online, which is both an archive and an active architecture that facilitates networking information and ongoing collaboration. At a time when travel and close contact are fraught with complication, Future School Online demonstrates how technology can support a globalized, collaborative approach to facing humanity's most pressing challenges.

The Korean Pavilion Now

The Korean Pavilion Now

Venice, Seoul

The Korean Pavilion Exhibition Program

Overview

A house, a well and a garden—a shared space for gathering, learning, rest and contemplation. This was the fundamental concept behind Future School’s occupation of the Korean Pavilion. This is not a space for consumption, but a space for living, for exchanges and for discussion. The Korean Pavilion is a unique structure within the Giardini of La Biennale di Venezia. Built in 1994–1995 to a design by Seok Chul Kim and Franco Mancuso, the only permanent part of the structure is a pre-existing brick toilet block. The rest of the building is, ostensibly, temporary and built around the mature trees on the site. This means that it is not the square box with straight walls and controlled lighting that some curators would desire it to be. Instead, it is transparent, with glass walls and unexpected curves, flooded with sunlight. Future School seeks to embrace the original intention behind the pavilion’s creation, revealing the story behind it while also exploring the full potential and quality of its architecture to host a new kind of school. The openness of the pavilion becomes its greatest asset, connecting the interior to the garden of the Giardini beyond its walls and creating a place of gathering.
This vision has been brought to life through a close partnership with Future School’s spatial design team, Ryul Song and Christian Schweitzer of SUPA Architects. The brick box at the heart of the pavilion is transformed, emulating the style of a traditional Korean house, with handmade hanji paper floors. A circular grass carpet by landscape architect Ah-Yeon Kim becomes a symbolic space of assembly. A modest kitchen, made possible by the existing plumbing within the pavilion, allows participants to offer tea and water to visitors, served in Jeju Onggi ceramics. An undulating Process Wall hosts an evolving, layered display of exhibitions and outputs, alongside the full programme of Future School, organised across A4 sheets of paper. A cluster of screens provides an exhibitionary platform for media. The roof—never before used as part of a Biennale Architettura exhibition—becomes a common space as part of the Curators Collective initiative. These physical spaces are complemented by the virtual space of Future School’s online platform. The two are inseparable, providing each other both content and context.
With the climate crisis high on the list of urgent issues the school will engage with, it was also important to pursue a strategy that would minimise the environmental impact of the physical pavilion. This demanded a design that could be created by reusing what already existed wherever possible, with minimum shipping of new materials and as little waste left at the end as possible.
The realisation of this ambition has been a true collaboration between the team in Korea, the small family of keepers of the Korean Pavilion that have been caring for the structure and its flow of temporary occupants for more than a decade, and the contractors in Venice. This positive exchange of knowledge and expertise toward a common goal echoes the ethos behind all of Future School's programming.

Carlotta Novella — Cucina Semi-Aquatica — 19 hours ago

On Saturday 25th September the Cucina Semi Aquatica opened its online doors for a lunch and dinner cooking workshop which focused on introducing productive landscapes, existing between land and water, through the medium of food.
We cooked together via Zoom and the recording of this session will be available soon on Future School website.

On the day, we created three simple dishes - one starter, a main and a dessert - inspired by the Venice island of St Erasmo and the Liverpool and Leeds Canal.

The recipes we explores departed and took inspiration from these two very different landscapes, looking at their history and evolution across time. Although the meal featured ingredients which are very much local to these two sites, we invite everyone to recreate the recipes with the ingredients representing territories between land and water which are more local to them.

On this page you can find a list of ingredients - and guidelines on how to find local equivalents - the full cooking process and a list of utensils you might need if you plan to create the three recipes at home.

To share with us your adapted recipes, you can email carlotta@publicworksgroup.net

Thank you!

Ana Betancour — An Atlas of Global and Local Imaginaries — 3 days ago

We have in our practice and teaching over many years developed a trajectory of projects investigated how global issues are affecting local conditions. By mapping, analysing and understanding responses and tactics to the global crisis in a local context, we have explored how local ways to operate could catalyse change within global transformations affecting urban and rural areas today.

As an example of this endeavour here we describe a project on the city of Gothenburg.

We have investigated transient edge conditions of harbour cities in relation to climate change, rising water levels, dynamic water conditions, flooding strategies and shifting economies. Studying the dynamics of the flooding in Gothenburg, we have explored the threats and problems the city and its built environment are exposed to, due to rising water levels. We have explored natural water edge ecologies; the logics and dynamics of ecosystems that are dependent on and profit from flooding and fluctuating water levels, imagining the riverbanks as a potential productive edge and water infrastructure system. How could this system be developed to be integrated in and become part of the city, and contribute to ways of living and working, production and recreation?

In our work and investigations of Gothenburg, a city which has undergone major changes during the past decades, have been focusing on developing alternative future scenarios and identities for the city, departing from its relationship to water. From being a significant harbour and industrial city, then turning into a city with an industry in decline, Gothenburg shows a high rate of unemployment, socio-cultural and racial tensions, a shortage of housing, and is one of the most exposed and threatened cities from rising sea levels and flooding in Sweden. The City Planning Office, in collaboration with property developers and the industry, have developed future plans for Centrala Älvstaden – an urban regeneration project for the region and the city of Gothenburg, branding, densifying and changing the structure and character of large areas of the city through 15,000 new dwellings and 40,000 new work opportunities for the north and south river-banks located in high-risk flooding zones.

Departing from the understanding of the coastal edge as a system, a productive industrial edge and an operative infrastructure, we developed propositions for an urban network – a series of interconnected cross-programmed spaces and architectural interventions – where the flooding water could be considered as a resource for the future of Gothenburg. Based on the model of a network, its physical as well as non-physical organisational pattern is an urban planning strategy in which the relationships and connections between actors, programmes, activities and spaces can be understood as both spatial and programmatic. The network is developed as a flexible series of self-sufficient spaces for fluctuating flows and uses, making it adaptable to future challenges and opportunities. Applying a wider and softer notion of infrastructure or infrastructural ecology, this added layer of intensity, enhancing the production, interaction, exchange and sharing of resources and space, could make it less vulnerable and less dependent on high technology and advanced infrastructure. Programming of spaces and architectural interventions, such as floating markets, biogas parks, waste water gardens, algae farms, and osmotic power plants, have been focusing on self-sufficiency in terms of energy and resources, local production and recycling, commonly shared, owned, used and run by local communities. Imagining Gothenburg as a city on water, where the rising water is considered a productive and common asset rather than a threat, we believe is critical for a sustainable development of the city.
