Justin McGuirk, UK-based curator and writer, and Swiss-based Urban Think Tank have just won the Golden Lion Award at the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale. Their winning project really challenges the role of architecture. Their installation is about a community living in a vertical slum in Caracas, Venezuela, and it asks us to consider why the poor should live in slums if there are empty offices in the city.
