A wooden Japanese house slated for demolition will be moved to Venice for exhibition. However, the house as displayed here will not be in its original form. Dismantled for shipping, it will reappear in new configurations created on-site by architects and artisans, adding new or local materials and elements in the process. In other words, the exhibition will be a chimeralike installation that combines old and new materials in a composite of creative efforts by multiple architects and artisans: architecture as the product of a chain of diverse yet collaborative actions.

Biennale Sneak Peek

The life of the building is in the expanse of time and space. We think it is in this expanse that people can find a place to live together.
