Venice Biennale: “Valley of Desire”, an antidote to the suffocating experience of Rome
As part of the 11th International Architecture Exhibition “Out There: Architecture Beyond Building”, West 8 participates in “Uneternal City. Thirty years after Roma interrotta”. This is a specific section in the Artiglierie dell’Arsenale dedicated to the city of Rome. The project of West 8, ‘Valley of Desire’, is an antidote to the suffocating experience of Rome, a cure for its failing heart, a remedy for its spirit.
The 11th International Architecture Exhibition, directed by Aaron Betsky and organised by La Biennale di Venezia, will take place in Venice from Sunday, September 14th to Sunday, November 23rd 2008. The preview will be on September 11th, 12th and 13th.
