Feeling good on Common Ground: The Venice Biennale in Architecture
The 2012 Venice Biennale in Architecture recently opened its doors to the public, welcoming crowds to see what's new and hot in architecture. The Biennale is a major international event, the equivalent of the Architecture Olympics, showing cutting edge work from all around the world. It reveals shifting aesthetics, changes in design, technology and building materials etc. But I believe the single most important reason to take note of this year's Biennale is its theme, Common Ground. Director David Chipperfield says he chose the theme "to encourage my colleagues to react against the prevalent professional and cultural tendencies of our time that place such emphasis on individual and isolated actions.
