2021: Venice Architecture Biennale as a member of Othernity.eu
What lessons could be learnt from the heritage of architectural modernism, this often-disputed era, confronted by changing expectations of sustainability,
social norms and habits, and as for Central and Eastern Europe specifically, a different political system? Othernity,
the Hungarian exhibition of the 2021 International Architecture Biennale in Venice provides thought-provoking answers to this question, by emerging practices from the region.
13th party district headquarters is a building in Budapest, a former main office of a local Communist party. After the fall of the regime, it has been transformed into a state treasury.
This transformation is discussed in a dialogue of a young woman, presumably an architect, and an older man, a maintenance worker.
These two takes on the problematic of architecture reconstructions revolves around issues of authenticity, burden of the past and what should or should not be preserved.
