The Russian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale

I love the The Russian Pavilion at the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale

No one seems to gripe much anymore about how, in a globalized context, the very idea of national pavilions at an international exposition might seem anachronistic. Perhaps that’s because, for the time being at least, we’ve decided they’re not. Identity is a powerful thing, and the more than 50 national pavilions at this year’s Biennale—concentrated mostly in the Giardini, but also at the Arsenale and sites throughout town—remind us not only of our “Common Ground,” the Biennale’s theme, but also our differences.  Click here (Arch Record) for the rest of the story or click here (Arch Daily).
