Overview

For the Venice Biennale 2000, the highly respected architects and architectural theorists Hani Rashid and Greg Lynn collaborated with a select group of students from Columbia University and the University of California, Los Angeles, to transform the American Pavilion into a four-week workshop and forum for architectural discourse--a creative laboratory for collective thought. Investigating, producing and reviewing a variety of schemes, the participants presented a foretaste of the ideas and concerns of a new generation of architects. Architectural Laboratories presents the results of this workshop through ten projects focusing on two themes: "The Embryologic House" and "Augmented Architecture." Guest critiques of the student designs are offered by philosopher and cultural critic Mark C. Taylor, ZKM chairman Peter Weibel, and Max Hollein, the United States Commissioner for the biennale.
