FEATURES:
Venice hosts seven biennales a year dedicated to the arts, and in September it was architecture's turn. The main show was curated by Aaron Betsky (the first American director to get the job since architecture entered the biennale in 1975) and it spread out across the city and its gardens. Reporting from the Arsenale, the Venetian empire's formidable naval yard in its 12th-century heyday; the Giardini, home of more than 30 national pavilions, including the McKim, Mead, and White-designed U.S. Pavilion, where editor-in-chief William Menking served as commissioner of the exhibit Into the Open; and the Italian Pavilion, which was devoted to experimental architecture, AN took it all in.
