In 2021, the World Architecture Festival, held exclusively online, invites the chief curators of the Triennale’s 6th edition to participate in a talk on the opening day, December 1, around the theme Art in Space. The talk is moderated by Jeremy Melvin, curator of this edition of WAF, who completes this panel discussion of curatorial issues under the Art in Space theme.

This was the opportunity for Cristina Veríssimo and Diogo Burnay to present Terra, the Triennale 2022 in preparation, as well as the various perspectives included in the programme taking place from September 29 to December 5, 2022. They also talked about the role of events such as Triennales and Biennales in the narrative of architecture, and what value they bring to the discipline.

The invitation is part of an itinerary of international presentations carried out in each edition. The aim is to involve the global community of architects, urbanists and landscape architects in a critical reflection on the paradigm shift that favours circularity, motivated by a greater and deeper balance among communities, resources and processes.

WAF is the world's largest annual international architectural event, available live and on-demand this year, featuring three days of keynote talks, awards and fringe events featuring global architectural thinkers and industry personalities via live streaming. With 18 digital crit rooms working as spaces for critical debate and 18 trios of international judges, WAF 2021 offers the largest content in the festival's history, with an equivalent to 40 days of exclusive programming
