In the last week of the largest architectural event in the world (running through Sunday, November 21st), here is a video compilation of the 12th International Architecture Biennale of Venice 2010. Featuring such prominent architects as Dominique Perrault (DPA), Bjarke Ingels (BIG), Tony Fretton (TFA), and Christian Kerez, this video is definetly worth a look.
With the title People mee in architecture, Biennale director Kazuyo Sejima believes that, “the 2010 Architecture Biennale should be a reflection on architecture. The twenty-first century has just started. Many radical changes are taking place. In such a rapid-changing context, can architecture clarify new values and a new lifestyle for the present? Hopefully, this show will be a chance to experience the manifold possibilities of architecture, as well as to account for its plurality of approaches, each one of them being a different way of living”. ”In the end, we would be happy if, thanks to this exhibition, we could feel where our society might be going, what dreams the future might hold for us.” ”The idea is to help people relate to architecture, to help architecture relate to people, and to help people relate to themselves”
