As part of ArchDaily’s coverage of the 2016 Venice Biennale, we are presenting a series of articles written by the curators of the exhibitions and installations on show.

In line with creative director Alejandro Aravena’s theme for the 15th La Biennale di Venezia “Reporting from the Front”, the 2016 South African pavilion at building D in the Sale d’Armi presents successful physical outcomes and practical solutions to urban challenges, conceived and implemented by citizens for the citizens of the administrative capital city of South Africa under the umbrella organization of “Cool Capital”.
