The Together and apart website offers information about the Together and Apart project, and its curators and exhibitors, for the Latvian pavilion at the 16th international Architecture Exhibition at the venice Biennale 2018.
From the Press release:
Latvian Pavilion at the 16th international Architecture Exhibition, curated by architect Matīss Groskaufmanis, Director of the New Theatre Institute of Latvia Gundega Laiviņa, urbanist Evelīna Ozola, and scenographer Anda Skrējāne, will highlight the turning points of the last hundred years in Latvian apartment block design.
The Latvian pavilion, titled Together and Apart looks at apartment buildings in relation to architecture’s role in organizing the society. It examines how this architectural typology generates ways of living together and apart — with one another, the market, and the state.
The research is presented through conceptual models, archival materials and a photography series depicting the multitude of apartment buildings found in Latvia today. This is accompanied by a book “Together and Apart”, opening up the topic for further study.
