venice 2012 architecture biennale: day three – live!
continuing our coverage from the arsenale of the venice biennale, the ‘wall house: one to one’ is a full-scale building initiated byindia-born, australia-based architect anupama kundoo. based upon a project constructed in 2000 in auroville, india, this iteration has been constructed in situ by a team of indian craftsmen, brought from their hometowns to venice to partake in the event. in collaboration with the university of queensland and IUAV students from venice, the interaction generates an exchange of techniques across three continents.
the result is a fusion of cultures with modern design which responds to needs based upon the climate. centrally located within one of the two on-site venues, this is the largest installation within the biennale and responds to the historic columns of the former naval rope factory which encompasses the exhibit. seamlessly transitioning between the permanent building and temporal construct, the handmade masonry units were shipped from auroville to venice and visually merge with its established, historic venetian shell.
