Celebrating our Human Footprint

Monday, May 23, 2016 EPEA and Michael Braungart present the Cradle to Cradle® Design Concept at the prestigious 15th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia in Venice from May 28 to November 27, 2016. 87 architects and EPEA are invited to turn this year’s motto “Reporting from the Front” into inspiring installations. They share their story from the frontline to reveal that architecture can make a difference and is able to improve our quality of life.
 

Additionally, 62 countries introduce innovative projects and concepts in architecture and urbanism at this year's Biennale. Up to 500,000 visitors are expected during the six months long exhibition. EPEA is the only representative of the city of Hamburg and one of the few institutions, which represents Germany at the Biennale. Alejandro Aravena elucidates the motto: “Reporting from the front will be about sharing with a broader audience, the work of people that are scrutinizing the horizon looking for new fields of action, facing issues like segregation, inequalities, peripheries, natural disasters, waste, pollution and participation of communities”.
