The Luxembourg Pavilion 2021 is part of new collaborative initiatives created in 2020 by curators and commissioners of national pavilions to support each other in this challenging period.

Biennalepavilions.com is a brand-new collective digital platform that was started by six National Pavilions* who belong to the Commissioner Group – a self-organised group of around 25 countries who are participating in this year's Biennale Architettura and who have been meeting regularly since the summer of 2020.

The website brings together all the contents and events related to more than 20 different pavilions involved in the project, consolidating them in one digital hub that does not replace the main event but enhances its potential.

This year, more than ever, the Biennale has become a hybrid event due to the global pandemic – the new reality it has created has accelerated the use of digital tools and empowered the participating National Pavilions to create new ways of engaging with their audiences. Most countries are opting for online or hybrid opening events during the Biennale opening week in May and will continue to disseminate their talks, seminars and other events online over the summer and autumn.

The idea for a common digital platform grew out of the need to reach our audiences in times when restrictions are imposed on travel and public gatherings, and to provide Biennale visitors with an opportunity to benefit no matter where they are physically. It creates a new layer of value for the visitors and for the pavilions themselves in addition to the physical events and exhibitions in Venice.
