“It’s Not For You! It’s For the Building”, Title of the Latvian Pavilion at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia showcases how technology risks creating new problems while providing solutions to urgent global crises.

it highlights the importance architecture from the human perspective and promotes the need to help people learn to live together with today’s hyper-intelligent machines.

The installation is made of an uncanny web of black pipes, which first appear like a foreign organism parasitizing on a space that used to belong to humans. Walking through the space, visitors begin to change their perspective and discover an amusing neighbor within the black pipes.
