Venice Biennale 2012: Inhabitable Models

Three London architecture practices (Lynch architects, Eric Parry architects and Haworth Tompkins) were asked to collaborate for the biennale on an installation depicting the city, but also demonstrating an attitude to design that seems characteristic of the place. Each of these architects takes the city as a given, as an existing common ground to be understood and adjusted with full reference to the context.


Each architect has brought a large-scale model of one of their buildings to the Arsenale, pieces they describe as inhabitable models. Each one demonstrates a relationship with the viewer that is articulated through art, each façade providing a setting for artworks. Behind these large fragments are a variety of media that describe their understanding of the historical and architectural richness of the London contexts in which they work.
