The Golden Lion at the Venice Architecture Biennale, Brazil

Brazil’s Pavilion “Earth” won the Golden Lion Award for Best National Entry at the 18th Architecture Biennale. The award ceremony took place on Saturday. The Brazilian Pavilion, curated by Gabriela de Matos and Paulo Tavares, focuses on the role of the past in understanding the future, using the land as a common thread.

The Brazilian Pavilion is “an exhibition of research focusing on Indigenous and Black philosophies and ideas regarding forms of reparation,” according to the award’s justification.

The exhibition jury, chaired by Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli, awarded the Golden Lion for best entry to the architectural firm DAR, an architectural collective founded by Alessandro Betti and Sandy Hila, for the project “Department of Dangerous Liaisons”. The award is given “for years of commitment to deep political engagement with architectural practices and recognition of decolonization in Palestine and Europe.”

Nigerian artist, designer and architect Dimas Nuku was awarded the Golden Lion by the jury. Dimas Nwoko studied at the Nigerian College of Arts, Science and Technology in Zaria. He was one of the first Nigerian architects to criticize Nigeria’s dependence on the West for importing materials, goods and ideas, the statement said. So he is also committed to using local resources.

The Lagoon City Architecture Biennale is the most important showcase for architecture worldwide. The 18th edition of the International Architecture Fair will run until November 26.
