9am Venice time Dezeen’s editor Tom Ravenscroft, architecture editor Lizzie Crook Digital editor Rupert Bickersteth There are many people on the ground who can help you. Venice Reporting from the 18th architecture biennale A collection of works by Scottish-Ghanaian academic, novelist and architect Lesley Lokko The theme The Laboratory of the Future is presented below.
Lokko made a statement that said “Africa is a laboratory for the future”. We are the world’s youngest continent, with an average age half that of Europe and the United States, and a decade younger than Asia.
We are the fastest urbanising continent in the world. Our population is growing at almost 4% per annum. This rapid, unplanned and largely uncontrolled growth has a negative impact on the local ecosystems and environment.
Architects translate images into reality.
But hope is a valuable currency. She continued, “To be hopeful is human.” “The vision for a modern, inclusive, and diverse society is appealing and seductive, but as long it is an image, it will remain a mirage. It is not enough to simply represent images. Architects are historically the key players who have translated them into reality.
“We envision our exhibition as an extended workshop where architects, practitioners, and creatives from across a broad field of disciplines will draw on examples from their practices in order to create a path that the audience can weave, imagining what the future may hold.”
