LifeObject combines biology and architecture to explore new ways of relating humans and the environment, rejecting the dualistic nature-culture divide. The exhibition features an installation called LifeObject, a "living structure" that responds to its surroundings, and aims to facilitate interdisciplinary dialogue between science and architecture. The exhibition focuses on resilience, a key concept in biological systems, which is especially relevant in Israel's geopolitical context.

Fun, colourful and thought-provoking, it offers a tongue-in-cheek moment to the Arsenale sequence...
