RIVA 1920 - BIENNALE ARCHITETTURA 2018
BIENNALE ARCHITETTURA 2018
16. INTERNATIONAL ARCHITECTURE EXHIBITION
VENICE, 26.05 - 25.11 2018
"Arcipelago Italia: Projects for the Future of the Country's Internal Territories" is the title of the Italian Pavilion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale curated by Mario Cucinella, who focuses his attention on the urban space that runs along the Italian backbone , from the Alpine Arch, along the Apennines, up to the Mediterranean. It is the result of a collective call launched in June 2017 by the curator who, through a fact-finding survey of the projects carried out or under construction, was able to underline the role that contemporary architecture can play in settlements distant from the large ones centers and often perceived as marginal and transitory places.
Five projects for the country, exhibited on 5 tables created by Riva 1920.
Nature makes man evolve, man makes the project evolve, and the project tries to make nature evolve, and so in this continuous circle the relationships and the researches that make nature a system available to those who can interpret and use. Nature exists above all as an adjective, natural, which indicates spontaneous and logical things, intelligent and beautiful, with a very precise function and a hidden sense of theirs. For Riva 1920, nature is linked to wood with its forms, its veins, its perfumes, a history that has lasted for almost one hundred years, characterized by a precise design identity that is realized in a product at the maximum quality and naturalness through the use of adhesives, completely natural waxes and oils combined with a sustainable design that involves the use of reused woods like the Briccole and the fragrant cedar of Lebanon used for the project signed by the architect Mario Cucinella
