For Taiwan’s seventh year at the Venice Biennale, the Taiwanese team will present Architect/Geographer – Le Foyer de Taiwan. The exhibition will embody the main theme of the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale which is “Common Ground”. The aspects of Taiwanese culture and architecture will be presented through the perspective of a geographer as mapping that can uncover a new understanding of Taiwan through international eyes. The team is supervised by the Ministry of Culture, organized by the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, and curated by Ke-Fung Liou. The exhibit will be displayed at Palazzo delle Prigioni. Follow us after the break for more on the exhibit. Architect / Geographer – Le Foyer de Taiwan is an architectural landscape that projects the culture and geography of Taiwan. The exhibit explores Taiwanese architecture as it has been inspired through local cultures and local geological conditions, as opposed to looking at western ideals of architectural aesthetics.
