The European Cultural Centre presents the fifth edition of the extensive biennial architecture exhibition. The exhibition will open in parallel with Biennale Architettura on May 22nd, 2021 and it will run for six months until November 21th, 2021 at Palazzo Bembo, Palazzo Mora and Giardini della Marinaressa, with press previews and opening parties in each location on May 20th and 21st, 2021.

TIME SPACE EXISTENCE features completed and ongoing projects, innovative proposals, and utopian dreams of architectural expressions. Through a wide selection of projects ranging from conceptual works, models, photographs, videos, sculptures, to site specific installations, each room will provide visitors information and inspiration on our surroundings. 

By bringing together a diverse group of participants working across disciplines, the European Cultural Centre aims at stimulating an exchange among architects, universities, legendary masters, emerging studios, established global practices, designers, artists, photographers, developers, engineering companies, who together can have a crucial role in shaping the future of our living.

In addition, the European Cultural Centre presents the TIME SPACE EXISTENCE series,  a special collection of video interviews featuring masters in architecture. Ricardo Bofill, Balkrishna Doshi, Bjarke Ingels, Odile Decq, Toshiko Mori, and many others will explore the fundamental topics of time, space and existence through their personal and professional perspectives.
