Blue bag venice biennale 2016

Auteur:IRMA BOOM

Uitgever:HNI

The Dutch pavilion at venice biennale 2016 focuses on the architecture of UN peacekeeping missions and presented a 'Blue' exhibition with a 'total-blue' pavilion and this BLUE BAG.

Why blue? The answer is simple and articulated at the same time: a specific type of blue (35.7% red, 57.3% green and 89.8% blue) is the flag-color of the United Nations as well as the their peacekeeping mission carried out across the world by the so-called “Blue Helmets”.

'reporting from the front’ is the theme of the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale, under which Alejandro Aravena has curated projects from around the globe that focus on the need to provide growing numbers of people with accommodation and basic living conditions, under increasingly difficult circumstances. As the director of the 15th international architecture exhibition, aravena has identified front lines around the world where creative architects can bring about a breakthrough in extremely complex urban issues, not least of all in places of military conflict. It is this particular topic that is the focus of malkit shoshan’s ongoing research into the architecture of the united nation’s (UN) peacekeeping missions.
