SUPERSUDACA / X BIENAL SAO PAULO / SESC POMPEIA / 2013
X Bienal Sao Paulo invited Supersudaca to mount an exhibition in SESC POMPEIA, develope a project, a workshop with the community in BIXIGA, and be part of a debate cycle.
Incomplete Works is the exhibition and the project at the same time.
At the occasion of Supersudaca’s 10 th anniversary the idea arose to publish a book on Supersudaca’s “Incomplete Works”, an idea that has been presented and exhibited at the Xth architecture biennale of Sao Paolo.
In order to be able to work, we used our “Exhibition Area” in the Biennale as our “Workspace”, so our exhibition was being mounted and getting completed as we worked, and our work was the performance.
The design of how we used space and displayed material in this exhibition/performance is in the same time the structure of the book.
Supersudaca is a network of architects formed in 2001. Its nodes are based in Argentina, Belgium, Chile, Curacao, Netherlands, Peru and Uruguay. Supersudaca has made a profile that is increasingly diverse in subjects affecting our build environment. Caribbean Tourism, China’s influence, Direct Actions in public space, Collective Housing are some of its recurrent themes explored from Tokyo to Talca, from Cancun to Cambodia. Supersudaca was recognized with the best entry award at the II International Biennale of Rotterdam (2005), the best research project at the IV Bienal Iberoamericana (2004) and ‘among the 20 architects that will change the future’ by Icon Magazine (2009). In the design realm, Supersudaca’s projects are published in several international publications and has obtained first prize in the international competitions for the experimental social housing project in Ceuta, Spain (2006) and the Museum of Modern Art of Medellin (2010).
