Serban Cornea debates at Venice Biennale opening

Serban Cornea will participate in a debate on Cities and urban regions in 2050’ as a part of the opening event of The Danish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale.

The pavilion, curated by Danish landscape architect Stig L. Andersson in collaboration with DAC, Danish Architecture Center, reintroduces the forgotten power of aesthetics as the complementary to the rational in response to ‘Fundamentals’, the overall theme of the Venice Biennale curated by Rem Koolhaas.

The Danish pavilion is part of DK2050, an ambitious project headed by MUTOPIA, aimed at defining national and regional urban strategies that support the green transformation towards achieving a carbon-free society. DK2050 acknowledges that rationality and aesthetics together form the foundation for our decision making as crucial powers when shaping a sustainable future.

Participants at the debate include The Danish Ministry of Culture Marianne Jelved, CEO of the Danish Architecture Centre and Commissioner of The Danish Pavilion Kent Martinussen, curator professor and landscape architect Stig Lennart Andersson, a number of Danish Mayors, Danish and international experts, Copenhagen City Architect Tina Saaby, partner Mathias Sauerbruch, along with representatives from Realdania, a Danish philanthropic organization that supports change in the built environment.

The event will take place the 6th of June at 11:00 am in front of The Danish Pavilion at Giardini.
