Arper supports A Lot With Little​

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.
