As some of you know, Interboro is designing an “outdoor living room” in the U.S. Pavilion’s courtyard at this year’s Venice Biennale. Built with simple, everyday materials found around Venice, Commonplace is conceived to serve as a quiet background to the colorful installations and programs of Spontaneous Interventions: Design Actions for the Common Good. Once Commonplace is deinstalled in the fall, its components will be donated to Venice, where they will become part of the everyday life of the city.
The Institute for Urban Design, who is curating the exhibition, is inviting individuals and organizations to support Commonplace by sponsoring one of two Commonplace items: passerelle, and sgabelli.
