Making collective values visible

A co-organised event with weareherevenice bringing a community forum into the ‘Finnisage’ of the 2012 Venice Biennale for Architecture, this event sought to understand what brings life to a city, particularly in its public places and asks how these might be better arranged, organised and designed. Architects and town planners together with activists, community groups, scientists and artists – will examine Venice’s potential and resources in the 21st century.
