the greatest festival

Lucca Biennale is among the most important events dedicated to paper applied to art, design, architecture and creativity, as paper is also an ancient material locally produced in the area of Lucca. It's one of a kind: every edition a theme tied to current events is chosen which the exhibition adheres to, to underline the connection between art and society. It gives the spectator food for thought, guided by the most innovative techniques of paper art.Lucca Biennale presents art exhibitions, projects, events, conferences and workshops.Thanks to an international call for artists, the most innovative and prominent figures of the Paper Art world take part in the Biennale, exhibiting their works during the Indoor exhibition (inside a historical building) and Outdoor exhibition (in the open air), or in the other sections: Design & Architecture, and Performances.

Other than the artistic exhibitions, Lucca Biennale is also a place to meet and grow, through the Network Days (talks and events dedicated to networking, to encourage artists and professionals to engage and exchange knowledge) and Educational Labs (creative workshops designed to accompany children in the discovery of paper art, inspired by the works exhibited). For every edition, Lucca Biennale hosts a guest country, giving it a space and platform to showcase its traditional and innovative use of paper in the world of art.

 tende 1

For the ninth edition of Lucca Biennale, the design & architecture section also includes the installation of the "Pirouette" prototype: a tent designed by the sculptor and designer Nicolas Bertoux, produced by DS Smith.

This prototype will be presented and inaugurated on Wednesday 19th September in Piazzale S. Donato at 12:00 p.m., in the presence of its designer, Nicolas Bertoux, who will give a presentation and demonstration.

The cardboard tents will be visitable and free, and will be installed until the 27th September.

Cardboard architecture is a field of study and development which is growing, at the same time the world is facing a housing emergency when it comes to refugees, evacuees and those in need.

The sculptor and designer Nicolas Bertoux, presents a project that unites these two themes through the creation of "Pirouette": a cardboard tent that is foldable, transportable, light, cheap and eco-friendly. The project doesn't pose itself as a solution to this complex emergency which is difficult to solve, it simply wishes to bring attention to the problem of those who are without housing and stimulate the search for a solution.

 architettura

For the ninth edition of Lucca Biennale, the design and architetcure section includes the creation of a cardboard architecture and a collaboration with the department of Architecture and Urban Planning of Tongji University.

The architecture will be inaugurated on Tuesday 28th August in Piazzale S. Donato, Lucca, at 6 p.m., in the presence of the professors and students of Tongji University that constructed it.

The architecture is visitable and free, and will be installed until the 27th September.

The College of Architecture and Urban Planning is one of the first colleges in China with programs in urban planning and is one of China’s most influential educational institutions. It aims to build harmonious and sustainable environments, carrying forward Chinese spiritual traditions, fostering international and domestic cooperation, and helping to create a bright future for their country. The project presented at the Biennale by the College of Architecture and Urban Planning is based on the traditional Chinese “Ting” buildings, where people used to stop and rest. These buildings are without walls to offer the visitor the necessary space.

The cardboard architecture takes inspiration from Roman arches and traditional elements that reinforce the structure. In this way, the traditional Chinese building are fused with Roman archways. The structure planned by the students is composed of a large space, a medium sized one and one part for kids to emphasize the various sizes. The three spheres appear completely different inside.  This project aims to underline closure to the outside world and the lack of communication. For this reason the top part of the pentagon has been removed and some windows have been inserted that connect the inside to the outside.
