Christophe Hutin presents “Communities at work" in Venice
The French Pavilion curator in Venice, Christophe Hutin, has been working on the make-up of cities and their exclusion logic for more than 20 years. Inspiration comes from many places for him, having lived in a township in Soweto, South Africa, for example. The project the architect is presenting in Venice shows this opening to the world.
From Soweto to Bordeaux via Detroit and Hanoi, Communities at work aims to understand how we will live together in the future. The place of residents in how their environment changes is essential for Christophe Hutin, who uses this project to describe the meeting between an architect and residents’ life experience.
