“We play, you play” the experimental approach to architecture of El Equipo Mazzanti

SpazioFMG per l’Architettura is exhibiting the work of the visionary Colombian architectural practice ‘El Equipo Mazzanti’. “We play, you play” is an interactive exhibit which turns the gallery into a real workshop: here, play becomes the key to interpreting the work and projects of the group led by Giancarlo Mazzanti.

IABR-2016, the 7th International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam started off on the 23rd of April 2016 with workshops, events, activities and a main exhibition to reflect on this installment’s theme: The next economy.

The heart of IABR–2016–THE NEXT ECONOMY is the former coffee warehouse Fenixloods II, in the Rotterdam neighborhood of Katendrecht. Here, IABR–2016 presents more than 60 projects, partly developed in the IABR–Ateliers, partly collected through an international open call for projects, and partly produced especially for the biennale in collaboration with national and international partners.
