…With the theme of Freespace, the Biennale Architettura 2018 presents for public scrutiny examples, proposals, elements - built or unbuilt - of work that exemplifies essential qualities of architecture which include the modulation, richness and materiality of surface; the orchestration and sequencing of movement, revealing the embodied power and beauty of architecture. This is the phrase with which the curators of the International Architecture Exhibition 2018, Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara declare - within the central part of the manifesto produced immediately after their appointment - the main objective of their scientific project. A consideration that presents itself as a possible synthesis of many other definitions or declinations of the word Freespace that can be imagined and which the manifesto contains. The founders of the Grafton Architects explicitly ask the guests to interpret this topic, taking a position on it through the presentation of their own work. When the invitation at the Faculty of Architecture in Rome to participate in the activities planned by the Biennale Sessions - already received for the 2016 edition - was renewed, we thought that some of these declinations could represent the paths that the academic staff is developing through their research and teaching activities in recent years.
