Biennial international architecture exhibitions in Venice – USA Pavilion

The USA pavilion has always been one of my favorites, but I’m slightly disappointed this time.

America wished to achieve an exhibition of architecture that looks like a big infographic entitled design actions for the common good

No more big buildings requiring large economic investments designed by famous superstars, but small acts of design by creative citizens. The focus has shifted from a select few privileged to the community.

The exhibition seeks to show how the American city of the future, shaped by countless micro-projects carried out by ordinary people, might be. To show this process they use a color chart similar to a bar code with the size of each strip representing the prevalence of a specific category in connection to the project: information (blue), accessibility (orange), community (pink) economy (light green), sustainability (dark green) and pleasure (blue).
