Curated by&nbsp;Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara&nbsp;of&nbsp;<a href="https://archinect.com/firms/cover/12595/grafton-architects" rel="nofollow" >Grafton Architects</a>&nbsp;under the title of Freespace, this year's biennale has put a slew of projects on display that are generous and open, asking visitors to enjoy the temporary environments they find themselves in.&nbsp;
In the following video, PLANE—SITE speaks with the Irish architects about the choice for this edition’s theme. The duo has stated their mission is to move beyond architecture as an object, instead imagining Freespace as an invitation to think about architecture as a space of opportunities. Literally and metaphorically, Freespace presents environments of freedom and celebrates the rich civic experience that they create.
