Beyond Mapping
Projecting the City

Berlage Institute, Rotterdam Venice Biennale, Italian Pavilion
10 September – 17 November 2006

Concurrent with the 10th Venice Architecture Biennale (Cities, Architecture and Society, curated by Richard Burdett), the Berlage Institute was invited to showcase its distinctive approach to contemporary architecture in the Italian Pavilion of the Giardini. Four studio workshop projects were highlighted, each presented by a series of graphics and models with corresponding books and video discussions in an over-scaled “roundtable” format.
