Emirates works grace the International Architecture Exhibition at the Venice Biennale


Foreign Minister Noura Al Gabi confirmed that the UAE is keen to participate in global platforms that highlight its success stories and cultural heritage, and enable its creators to connect with their peers around the world.

This came when he visited the “Baron Plenty” exhibition at the UAE National Pavilion at the 18th edition of the International Architecture Exhibition at the Venice Biennale.

During his visit to the exhibition, Al Gabi was briefed on the artworks and exhibits that reflect the architectural possibilities when reimagining arid environments into abundant spaces. The exhibition explores the integration of ground-based knowledge and contemporary technology in the arid landscapes of the UAE. A special focus on the desert plateaus, valleys and plains of the Hajar Mountains in the United Arab Emirates and the surrounding coastal areas.

Al Gabi said: “The UAE Pavilion’s successful participation in the Venice Biennale, an international architecture exhibition, reflects the country’s unique creative sector, while promoting our values ​​and vision across multiple sectors. Over the past 12 years, we have shared the stories of the UAE through prestigious exhibitions and drawn the world’s attention to our achievements.

The UAE’s national pavilion, “Baron Abundance” at the 2023 biennale, hopes to address the misconception that arid places are resource-scarce lands, and shed light on the thriving ecosystems and ecosystems that exist in the UAE and its environs. Relevant practices developed by the people of the Emirates, who understand their nature as they adapt to their environment.

The exhibition aims to highlight these practices as climate conditions exacerbate drought-related challenges around the world. These practices have been successful in supporting life in water-scarce environments and have been adapted to other environments, reducing pressure on natural resources and slowing land degradation.
