The Venice Biennale: Get involved II – paper+
Workshop for secondary school students

17–18 October 2014

Newspapers are usually read, but not much else. At the Get Involved II workshop, newspaper was the starting point for creating architectural space. Newspaper is a lightweight, fragile, and sensitive material, and by rolling and folding it, and by taking other innovative approaches to it, almost anything is possible. How to create various spatial compositions from a newspaper sheet rolled into a stick?

Under the Architecture Biennale, the Venetian Arsenal became the inspiration for our creativity. It whispered ideas for playgrounds, hiding places, an urban forest, and sculptures.
