Utopia Forgot, Learning From the Megastructure

Venice Architecture Biennale 2012

While sitting on the floors of a Palladian church, under a Santiago Calatrava bridge, or before a Peter Eisenman model, I learnt about the object by reimagining it with my pencil. My sketches are therefore more than a quick snapshot; they represent my process of discovery.

Quiet Biennale

Tracey Hau    

It only took so long for it to get quiet at the Biennale but now I can compare to a month into Biennale, the first public week of Biennale is by far the quietest.

Unmediated space/collaborative space

Linda Matthews    

Once the productive heart of the greatest navel shipyard in the world and thus the engine of Venetian political power and control, the Arsenale is now home to a different kind of political engine: an exhibition venue that relentlessly contests both complacency and the tyranny of mediated space.
