is the question that Hashim Sarkis, Curator of the 17th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice has chosen as the title of the event that will take place in Venice from the 23rd May to the 29th of November 2020.
Considering the context of widening political divides and growing economic inequalities where we actually are, he calls architects to imagine spaces in which “we can generously live together: together as human beings who, despite our increasing individuality, yearn to connect with one another and with other species across digital and real space; together as new households looking for more diverse and dignified spaces for inhabitation; together as emerging communities that demand equity, inclusion and spatial identity; together across political borders to imagine new geographies of association; and together as a planet facing crises that require global action for us to continue living at all”.
