dpr-barcelona at the Venice Biennale of Architecture 2014
We’re thrilled to share some of the projects and events in which dpr-barcelona is involved at the 14th International Architecture Exhibition, la Biennale de Venezia, in Venice, Italy.
[01] Radical PedagogiesRadical Pedagogies: ACTION-REACTION-INTERACTION  explores a series of pedagogical experiments that played a crucial role in shaping architectural discourse and practice in the second half of the twentieth century. As a challenge to normative thinking, they questioned, redefined, and reshaped the postwar field of architecture. The notions of “Italian” architecture, design, pedagogy and radicality were complicated during those years by the constant circulation of people, books and concepts out of and into the country. The exhibition at Monditalia draws a new kind of cartographic network of the contested spaces of pedagogical transformation: spaces of ACTION (the radical questioning and reformulation of the discipline), REACTION (the pedagogical and political friction created by the urgency of these reformulations) and INTERACTION (the constant fluctuation of this information by the movement of ideas and people). 
RADICAL PEDAGOGIES is an ongoing multiyear collaborative research project by Beatriz Colomina with the PhD students at Princeton University School of Architecture.
For this project dpr-barcelona is developing the multiplatform publishing concept in collaboration with Anne-Sophie de Vargas as well as the Augmented Reality interactions for the exhibition.

[04] Towards a New Avant-Garde

Towards a New Avant-Garde”, is a three-part event series at the opening weekend of the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale. Tracing parallels between distinct generations, the event series seeks to understand what lessons can still be learned from the Italian architectural impulses of the 60s and 70s, and how they can be best applied by the newest generation of architects in Italy and abroad.
Lead by Superscript, the event is a collaborative effort with author and scholar Catharine Rossi and researcher and scholar Rossella Ferorelli, and the design team includes architects DEVspace and interaction designer Thibault Brevet.
César Reyes will attend to the #stayradical conversation series on June, Sunday 8th from 11am.

[05] OfficeUS Working Summit Issues TalksOfficeUS 25 ISSUES TALKS, the inaugural working summit of the United States Pavilion at the 14th International Architecture Exhibition, la Biennale de Venezia, in Venice, Italy. The conversations will take place during the opening days, on June 6th, 7th, and 8th at the US Pavilion in the Giardini and will launch the six month investigation of OfficeUS.
Big Box Rules & Network Patents. Exploring the typologies of trade, the logics that instigate them and the physical landscapes they enable. With Francisco Gonzalez, Ethel Baraona Pohl and Joseph Grima.
[06] Networked PoliticsPart of the Weekend Specials program for #monditalia on 6-7 September by Space Caviar, MAIO, Folder, and dpr-barcelona 
The Network Politics event is a rapid, intensive exploration of how cultures of decision-making, from formal political structures to informal collective protests, and their relation to architecture, have radically evolved in the age of the network. Given the setting of Monditalia, the NetPol weekend specifically examines the Italian context through an intensive forty-eight-hour master class.
The program will confront the changing nature of protest as both collective and individual activity—from movements such as Occupy, the Indignados and the Arab Spring to the digital activism of Wikileaks and Anonymous—in relationship to the physical space of the city. From the point of view of the mechanisms and apparatuses of control, the rise of new technological devices has diminished the importance of the physical limits that architecture could offer, and has consequently expanded the architectural conception of public space.

'The Culture of Making' Debate & Volume #39 Launch
Saturday, June 7 at 3:00pm in UTC+02
La Biennale di Venezia in Venice, Italy

“displacements: an x’scape journal (@DisplacementsJ ) is an architectural & editorial project born out of the research led since 2009 in the Landscape LAB at the Master in Advanced Architectural Projects (MPAA) and the Cultural Landscape Research Group of the ETSAM School of Architecture in Madrid.
A tool, displacements, to broaden the scope of a dialogue that might help us face in an integrated, situated and transdisciplinar way the two essential aspects of any critical practice: knowledge and action. A concept, x’scape, that allows us to move between space read as inert scenario in which life unfolds and lived and practiced space understood as a common production or multiple corporeality crossed by political, social, imaginary, ecological… dimensions.
Thus, on the launch of its first installment—criminal displacements, a collective investigation on the ambiguous relation between law, crime and the production of space—, we are calling out for our first displaced dialogue that will take place in Madrid’s Medialab-Prado at 7pm on Tuesday the 6th of May.
That same evening we will also introduce the Society for the Exploration and Practice of the Spatial Common(s), in which we will see to minor repertoires, spatial minstrelling tactics or the production of a common spatiality, but where, above all, we will keep exploring, navigating and producing the city.”

“Welcome to our Repetition issue. Through eighteen contributions we immerse into a world of monotony, variation, experimentation, replicas, strategies, simulations, imperfections, and routines. We do so in long and short essays, photo essays, interviews, videos, manifestos, and projects. A combination of contributions that question, embrace, and ultimately work with the topic at hand. On top of the varied format of our contributions you will find another aspect added to the mix. Each contribution is uniquely interpreted by a designer based in Chicago, all under the creative direction of Rick Valicenti and Bud Rodecker from Thirst. A specific identity for each contribution that makes up an issue on repetition. We had fun adding even more variation to the topic. In the end, repetition does not have to be boring.
Contributions by Michelle Benoit, Bianca Bosker, Edward Burtynsky, Livia Corona Benjamin, Panos Dragonas, Fake Industries Architectural Agonism, José García Soriano, Iker Gil, James Goggin, Sarah Hirschman, Carmen López Albert, Sergio Lopez-Pineiro, Claude Nicollier, Clara Olóriz Sanjuán, Project_, Roberto Soundy, Patrick Sykes, Neyran Turan, Lyndon Valicenti, Rick Valicenti, and Camilo José Vergara.
