Idea Code 18313

The French Pavilion at the 2018 Architecture Biennale in Venice addresses the shift towards seeking out alternative places, exploring and paving the way to new uses, and extending the premise of third places. “Infinite” because they are open to possibilities, possess potential, and are unfinished. This book sheds light not only on the processes, the different ways they are managed and run, and the commitment of the participants, but also on the underlying philosophical and political issues relating to their emergence. Architect-curators Encore Heureux present ten remarkable and different initiatives, places which cultivate and believe in mixing genres, activities, and audiences.
