Panavision, the Uruguay exhibit for the 13th Venice Biennale, features the works of the new generation of Uruguayan architects, using their Pavilions as a common ground, a place rather than an exhibit, where the focuses, approaches, tools, worries, emphasis and strategies of these practices converge. More details from the curators after the break:
Uruguay has been invited to be one of the Latin American countries participating in the 2012 Venice Biennale. Located in a former warehouse of the Biennale, which has belonged to the Uruguayan State since 1960, the Uruguayan pavilion will present their curatorial proposal, Panavision – an exhibition that will feature six diverse and emergent Uruguayan practices that will not exhibit their work, but rather their practices as a way to spark a discussion on contemporary Uruguayan architectural agenda.
The practices representing the young generation of architects for the 2012 Uruguayan pavilion are the following:
Vivace Music, an elegant, high-end recording studio, has debuted in the heart of Montevideo, the ¨Switzerland¨ of Latin America. Acoustically superb, and aesthetically unique, studio details are highlighted by rare wood elements such as doors, window trim, flooring and custom furniture built with recycled wood acquired from ancient wooden casks originally used for the leather tanning industry, (one the multiple activities of studio co-owner Luis Cesio). Designed by Walters-Storyk Design Group to accommodate the full spectrum of Latin, jazz, pop, rock and world music production, Vivace establishes a new standard of high-quality audio production for South America.
