We are reaffirming our commitment to culture by supporting A Lot With Little, an exhibition on ethical and responsible architecture, which makes its world premiere at the Venice Architecture Biennale on 26 September.
A Lot With Little, a project created and produced by curator Noemi Blager with films by Tapio Snellman, consists of a multichannel film installation showcasing selected projects of ten architects from across the globe who have responded to the climatic, social and economic crises.
Our decision to support A Lot With Little stems from the recognition of shared values: culture, sustainability and care towards people. These all play a central role for us, as we aim to become an example of responsible business, by implementing sustainability in our culture, as well as in our processes and products.
Roberto Monti, our CEO, comments, "A Lot With Little is a fascinating journey into architecture, which in this project best expresses its true meaning – to listen to and accommodate people's needs. Supporting this project for us means echoing a powerful message: in architecture - and in design - you have to put people at the center, in order to offer new and useful solutions."
Noemi Blager, curator, adds: “A Lot With Little presents the inspiring work of architects from both the Global North and the Global South. While the showcased projects respond to very different cultural, climatic and socio-economic realities, they are all conceived ethically and responsibly, with the future of the planet - our home - at its core. It was important that the funding for this exhibition came from an equally responsible and ethical source, which is why I approached Arper, and I’m thrilled to have their support."
After the Venice premiere, the second leg of the exhibition will be continued in Chicago from October 26 to January 27, and will continue its international tour in 2024.
