Iluminaccion selected for the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale, at the US Pavilion.

IlluminAction was selected to represent the island in the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale in Italy. The selection was part of the Spontaneous Interventions: Design Actions for the Common Good exhibition by The Institute of Urban Design. This exhibit is part of an archive of actionable strategies around U.S. cities to improve the public urban realm.






“We are very excited to represent Puerto Rico in this gathering to bring an example of what we are already doing here in San Juan which is part of the larger efforts that designers are taking globally to create actionable initiatives that solve urban issues or provide new opportunities for public spaces in the city.” – Andrea Bauza, founder of Urbano Activo

IlluminAction was the result of a series of workshops led by UrbanoActivo’s LEP. LEP, Laboratorio Espacio Público, is an 11-member multi-disciplinary collective for the discussion and experimentation of the limits of public space in Puerto Rico. LEP conducted a series of workshops to explore the relationship between the public and private realm in San Juan. The group was looking to find new ways of perceiving these relationships to make the city a more connected and livable place for all.
