Morocco's first exhibition at the Biennale's International Architecture Exhibition is titled "Fundamental(isms)" and explores the unique contribution of twentieth-century architecture in Morocco. The exhibition showcases seven key historical projects, including urban housing and contemporary speculations of inhabitable desert structures. The exhibition aims to question how to integrate architectural and infrastructural solutions into the marginalized territory of the Sahara. Eight teams propose speculative projects on creating vehicles of inhabitation in this inhospitable environment.

Latvia is reopening the archive boxes once again, reminding us (including the Biennial Presidency) of everything that has already been thought up and invented, and inviting us to place the most urgently needed products in the basket, to combine them with one another, and ultimately consume all the knowledge.
Fun, colourful and thought-provoking, it offers a tongue-in-cheek moment to the Arsenale sequence...
