13th International Architecture Exhibition
From 29 August 2012 to 25 November 2012
From 29 August to 25 November the 13th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale livened up the city with exhibitions, meetings and a total of 18 events throughout.
Spread over more than 10,000 square meters and organized into a single route from the Central Pavilion of the Venice Biennale of Architecture in the Pavilions to the Gardens, the Biennale of Architecture of Chipperfield - the renowned English architect called to direct the 13th international architecture exhibition - Venice welcomed 69 projects and 55 nations.
Architects, photographers, artists, critics and scholars have responded to the call of the Architecture Biennale in Venice 'Common Ground' with unique and original proposals and installations, often involving in the project other colleagues with whom they share a 'common ground'. Thanks to this kind of collaboration the artists present at the 13th Biennale of Architecture were around 119.
The 13th International Architecture Common Ground offers a challenge to individualism and isolated actions to demonstrate the importance of the ideas common in the architectural installations, proposals and innovative thoughts to try to heal the division between civil society and architecture in contemporary society. The 13th Venice Architecture of the Biennale highlights an interest in everything new to the city, proposing the redevelopment of urban spaces or recycling of existing buildings. The artists invited to the Architecture Biennale in Venice 2012 may produce a thought engaging with the architecture of the past and present. The result is experimental and innovative research, for the construction of new realities.
With a record number of visitors - more than 178,000, the 13th Venice Biennale of Architecture remains faithful to the research already undertaken in the previous editions and continues to be a major event for the field of architecture.
