”The emphasis of the 2012 Biennale is on what we have in common. Above all, the ambition of Common Ground is to reassert the existence of an architectural culture, made up not just of singular talents but a rich continuity of diverse ideas united in a common history, common ambitions, common predicaments and ideals.”- explains David Chipperfield, who directed the 13th Biennale di Architettura.

 

”Common Ground” is an ambitious concept, with the contributions given by architects as a professional group with very distinct points of view. The challenge for the visitor is therefore also to discover the common besides the single exhibits, which often worked very well for themselves.

The 13th International Architecture Exhibition, directed by David Chipperfield and titled Common Ground, is open from 29th August to 25th November 2012.
