Publisher's description: Based on the Thirteenth International Architecture Exhibition at the Venice Biennial in 2012, Common Pavilions investigates the architectural significance of the twenty-nine national pavilions set up for the event in the Giardini di Venezia. The late celebrated Italian photographer Gabriele Basilico has documented each pavilion, and his work is presented in large-format and lush duotone printing. His rich images reflect the atmosphere and character of the pavilions with care and attention to detail. Thirty authors from the nations represented, including architects, philosophers, and artists, have contributed short essays that present the historical and national context for each pavilion, and explain the architectural importance of the pavilion design itself. For anyone who attended the Venice Biennial and for all who missed it, Common Pavilions provides beautiful documentation of what may be the world's best known exhibition site for art and architecture.
