Golden Lion winners Urban-Think Tank, Iwan Baan and Justin McGuirk bring a piece of Venezuela to the Corderie dell'Arsenale, with a temporary bar emulating the spirit of the world's tallest squat.

The members of Urban-Think Tank argue that the future of urban development lies in collaboration among architects, private enterprise and the global population of slum-dwellers. For once, the positive aspects of an uncontrollable urban process that fearlessly reveals its potential for innovation seem to have been highlighted. Autonomous "cities within the city", these organisms grow and develop along with the social structure of the communities that live in them. In a desirable future where their role in the urban sphere is expressly legitimated, we shall be able to invest financially in more suitable and socially sustainable forms of "living" at last.Fabrizia Vecchione (@fbrz_vecchione)
