The 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale featured 61 national pavilions. These pavilions were curated by Alejandro Aravena under the theme of Reporting from the Front. ArchDaily and PLANE—SITE collaborated for an exclusive video series composed of visits to some of the pavilions to gather insights from their curators.
PLANE—SITE sat down with curators of the Kuwait National Pavilion Ali Karimi and Hamed Bukhamseen (Harvard University Graduate School of Design) to gain insight into their exhibition. Instead of focusing solely on Kuwait, “Between East and West: A Gulf” imagines geopolitical conversation at the scale of the entire gulf while promoting the architectural talent of region and the power of architecture to address complex issues.
