Towards a New Avant-Garde:
At the 2014 Venice Biennale, an event and installation bring together the newest generation of Italian architects to debate issues of identity, collaboration, and economics.
Venice, Italy, June 2014 – Towards a New Avant-Garde, a three-part conversation series during the opening weekend of the 14th International Architecture Exhibition— La Biennale di Venezia, brings together a new generation of Italian and international architects, confronting their motivations and work with the legacy of the radical architecture movement of the 60s and 70s. The series, taking place on Sunday, June 8, is complemented by a live-edited installation that reflects both the conversation on site and one happening simultaneously online. Produced by the New York-based consultancy Superscript, the discussions will feature a group of talented and thought-provoking young architects, bringing them face to face with practitioners from an older generation and an international group of critics and provocateurs.
Superscript is excited to be part of Surface magazine’s “2012 Portfolio of American Influence”! In a feature on contemporary influencers in Architecture Media, Surface editor Spencer Bailey talks to Molly Heintz about Superscript’s Architecture and Design Book Club (ADBC).
