This year's Beiennale theme "Common Ground" shows how the work of major protagonists of contemporary architecture - often regarded as independedent individual creators - is in fact based on historical lineages of collective research This is also true of the work of Zaha Hadid Architects.
The 13th International Architecture Exhibition (Venice Architecture Biennale 2012) titled "Common Ground," directed by David Chipperfield and organized by la Biennale di Venezia chaired by Paolo Baratta, is open through Nov, 25 2012, at the Giardini della Biennale and at the Arsenale.
The 13th exhibition has arisen and developed from the path of research that la Biennale di Venezia carries out in the field of architecture, which in turn has made la Biennale a major event over the years.
After a series of editions put in the hands of critics and historians and after the last edition directed by Kazuyo Sejima, the first woman to direct the Architecture Biennale, this year it has been given to the hands of an architect, the English David Chipperfield, “a person - said President Paolo Baratta - who entertains a very intense vision of architecture as practice.”
