Yvonne Farrell e Shelley McNamara

In the run up to La Biennale di Venezia PLANE—SITE spoke to its curators Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara. In this short video interview, they discuss their architectural vision for this edition’s theme, “Freespace”, in which they move beyond architecture as an object and instead explore questions of space. “Freespace” is an invitation to think about architecture as a space of opportunities. Literally and metaphorically, “Freespace” presents environments of generosity, accessibility and freedom and celebrates the rich civic experience that they create.
