Pavilion of Slovenia at the Venice Biennale 2021

May 22 - Nov 21 2021    

Pavilion of Slovenia at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia / Venice Biennale

The exhibition titled "The Common in Community: Seventy Years of Cooperative Centres as a Social Infrastructure" focuses on the Cooperative Centre – a multipurpose public building most often set in a rural context. In villages, small towns and suburban areas they serve as venues for various administrative, economic, social and cultural activities. The cooperative centre has a specific architectural typology, whose purpose is to create an indoor public space that usually serves as a central space in the community, a place of social interaction and a hub that serves a range of local community needs.
Please note that they've moved it to next year. That means more time to be excited!

 Cooperative centres represent the remnants of the Yugoslavian project of building cooperative centres during the time of post-war reconstruction and the broader modernisation of society. A network of 523 cooperative centres was planned for Slovenia and, as the research shows, more than 300 were built within a couple of years.
