Common Ground 13th Archtecturra di Biennale Venezia by Sir David Chipperfield

Common Ground 13th Archtecturra di Biennale Venezia


Common Ground 13th Archtecturra di Biennale Venezia by Sir David Chipperfield

13th International Architecture Exhibition: the art of organizing the space we share. The ambition of Common Ground is to reassert the existence of an architectural culture made up not only of singular talents but also of a rich continuity of diverse ideas united in a common history, in common aspirations, in common predicaments and ideals. If architecture is to be more than only the exceptional and privileged moment of our built world, a deeper engagement must then be found between talents and resources. Common Ground invites us to consider how these shared concerns and expectations may be better directed.
