The Venice Architecture Biennale is one of the most important events on the International architecture calendar, and it has finally opened its door yesterday. It is an occasion where world’s most influential architects and designers can display their new projects that are arranged in different pavilions each with different themes.
This is the 13th Venice International Architecture Biennale, and it centered around the theme of “Common Ground.” The director David Chipperfield explains that the common ground is what we have in common: “Above all, the ambition of Common Ground is to reassert the existence of an architectural culture, made up not just of singular talents but a rich continuity of diverse ideas united in a common history, common ambitions, common predicaments and ideals. In architecture everything begins with the ground. It is our physical datum, where we make the first mark, digging the foundations that will support our shelter.”
