“The Architectural Imagination” is theme of U.S. Pavilion at Venice Biennale 2016

The U.S. department of State has selected Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan to organise the U.S. Pavilion at next year’s Venice Biennale, under the theme of “The Architectural Imagination”.

The pavilion will be curated by Cynthia Davidon, executive director of Anyone Corporation and editor of architecture magazine Log; along with dean of Taubmann College of Architecture and Urban planning and principal of MPdl studio Monica Ponce de Leon.

The theme will present new architectural ideas proposed for Detroit, but ones with global applications, focusing on today’s urban and environmental issues.
