Venice Biennale 2012: Light HousesEdit profile
T&V is invited to exhibit in the Nordic Pavilion at the 13th International Architecture Exhibition, directed by David Chipperfield and titled Common Ground: ”The emphasis of the 2012 Biennale is on 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.”
The Nordic Pavilion 2012 is organized by the Museum of Finnish Architecture and curator Peter MacKeith: ”On the 50th anniversary of the 1962 completion of Sverre Fehn’s iconic building, the Museum of Finnish Architecture proposes LIGHTHOUSES, a Venice Biennale exhibition worthy of its Nordic “house”, but moreover an exhibition attuned to contemporary Nordic issues of economic and environmental ethic.
