    The proposal for the installation of the XVI Architecture Biennale starts with the selection of the venue: The Contemporary Art Museum at the Forestal Park. Even if the building wasn´t big enough to host the Biennale, it had plenty of virtues for the event: a centric location with good accessibility, immersed on the most important park in Santiago, but mostly because it has one of the most significant variables for this installation: the possibility to extend the Biennale to a wider audience, not only to the architects. Opening the exhibition on the specific context “Towards an architecture that cares about our planet”, results in an exposure of our affairs to the public, on an open plaza tied to a space on where each part of the exhibition allows for an open exchange of information.
