AS A CIVIL RIGHT
Pavilion of Antigua and Barbuda
At the 16th International Architecture Exhibition
La Biennale di Venezia
Following the theme of FREESPACE, Antigua and Barbuda's inaugural National Pavillion for La Biennale Architectura explores environmental justice as a civil right.
As an investigation into the acute crisis of climate change facing this island nation, cutting edge sustainability and unique partnerships are explored in the rebuilding of Barbuda, expanding the Botanical Gardens, and the restoration of Government House, included in
the World Monuments Fund Watch 2018.
Video excerpts of conversations among high school students from the islands of Antigua, Barbuda, New York City, and Venice are uploaded to our National Pavilion, culminating in a robust youth presentation regarding Mother Nature vs. Human Intervention.
