Following a one-year postponement of its annual event due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the 17th International Venice Architecture Biennale has returned. This year’s theme asks “How Will We Live Together” and has been curated by Lebanese architect and educator Hashim Sarkis. The titular question is unpacked by dividing it into five scales with topics that explore borders, communities, households, diversity, and the planet. The main exhibition of the biennale is composed of works from 114 participants from 46 countries. Among those, there are a handful of African creatives that give their take on this year’s theme. Additionally, Ghanaian-Scottish architect and educator Lesley Lokko is one of the five members on the international jury.

Here, we highlight 7 African creatives participating in this year’s event and their responses to the questions presented in “How Will We Live Together.”
