Spontaneous Interventions at Venice Biennale

Two of our projects, Fresh Moves Mobile Produce Market and the 2010 winner of our ACTIVATE! Public Space Design Competition titled Cut. Join. Play. have been included in "Spontaneous Interventions: Design Actions for the Common Good", the official U.S. presentation at the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale. The 13th International Architecture Exhibition, directed by David Chipperfield and titled Common Ground, will run in Venice from 29th August through 25th November 2012.

From the official website: “Spontaneous Interventions will frame an archive of compelling, actionable strategies, ranging from urban farms to guerilla bike lanes, temporary architecture to poster campaigns, urban navigation apps to crowdsourced city planning. These efforts cut across boundaries, addressing architecture, landscape, infrastructure, and the digital universe, and run the gamut from symbolic to practical, physical to virtual, whimsical to serious. But they share an optimistic willingness to venture outside conventional practice and to deploy fresh tactics to make cities more sustainable, accessible, and inclusive.”
