Concours pour le Pavillon Suisse de la Biennale d'architecture 2020, Venise (IT)

In a country with a financially-strong population of 8 million, architecture finds itself driven by increasingly advanced techniques such as standardisation, prefabrication or pre-design. Given that economics is central to all considerations, the question raised is the following: If we were to start all over again, what would architectural production be like? By focusing on the human, would it be possible to rediscover creative savage mind, freed from all constraints?
