ARTfarm at the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale
One of our projects which was done under the umbrella of Architecture for Humanity New York Chapter and as a part of the AFHny Studio was accepted into the U.S. Pavilion at the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale. The 13th edition of the Venice Biennale will be held from August 29 to November 25, 2012. The theme for the pavilion this time round happens to be ‘Spontaneous Interventions: design actions for the common good’ and ARTfarm fits right in there. ARTfarm is a community based urban art project and everything about it is spontaneous and guerilla. The planters created out of waste cabinet doors were sourced and put together at ReBuilders Source, a retail warehouse for surplus and salvaged building materials recovered from construction and demolition jobs. The project was done in collaboration with Department of Transportation, NY and the Bronx Museum of Art.
