A somewhat open theme for the 2010 Venice architecture biennale; People meet in architecture.
The President of the Biennale Paolo Baratta elaborated on the chosen umbrella title;
“The 12th Exhibition wishes to reopen the discussion about architecture and its role in civilization. This discipline must be in a position to accept the challenge of organizing the space of our lives. In this sense, it must address one of the highest problems: the contemporary realization of the res publica”.
Curious about the response from the British Council appointed MUF architects who will determine what is showcased in the British Pavilion.
Biennales encourage odd overtones of nationalism. Let's collaborate with Japan.
