The Volkswagen Group has committed to support the German Pavilion and the concept of ‘Open for Maintenance – Wegen Umbau geöffnet’ at the 18th International Architecture Biennale in Venice. The event brings together architects and designers from all over the world to showcase their innovative ideas and solutions in the field of architecture. The German Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale is recognized for its focus on sustainability and its commitment to green building. The Volkswagen Group has recognized the importance of supporting this initiative as part of its overall sustainability strategy. The automotive company sees sustainable architecture as a field in an area where they can apply their expertise and technologies to promote a greener and cleaner future.

“We need spaces in which to live and work, but above all in which to generate ideas. Rethinking how we shape these spaces by giving top priority to the sustainable use of resources is one of the greatest challenges of our time. We are delighted to be able to help the German Pavilion’s curatorial team to open up this topic for critical artistic and creative examination among a broad public in Venice,” announced Benita von Maltzahn, Head of Global Cultural Engagement at the Volkswagen Group. 

The concept of ‘Open for maintenance – Wegen Umbau geöffnet’ focuses on the transformation and reuse of existing spaces instead of constructing new buildings. This idea aligns perfectly with the Volkswagen Group’s vision of reducing environmental impact. By supporting this concept, the Volkswagen Group seeks to foster creativity and innovation in architecture, encouraging participants to think about sustainable and efficient solutions for renovating and adapting buildings. The 18th Venice International Architecture Biennale is a leading event in the field of architecture, and the Volkswagen Group’s participation in this platform demonstrates the company’s commitment to sustainability and focus on promoting innovative and environmentally friendly architectural solutions.

In addition to the support of the Venice Architecture Biennale, the Volkswagen Group supports numerous initiatives in the Volkswagen Group’s sector to promote sustainability and environmental protection. These include the development and production of electric vehicles, the reduction of carbon emissions in its operations, and the promotion of responsible business practices throughout the supply chain. Volkswagen’s ID.Family features a line up of electric vehicles in all different classes. Ready to find out more about Volkswagen electric vehicles?
