The work by Álvaro Siza Vieira, realized at the Giardino delle Vergini in the Arsenale on the occasion of the 13th International Architecture Exhibition (2012) curated by David Chipperfield, has been recognized by everyone for its efficiency in display. Because of this, la Biennale has decided not to demolish it and to keep it alive.

Siza’s work will be part of the upcoming two Biennale exhibitions and will be considered as a “small pavilion” to be offered to the curators as an additional exhibition space.

La Biennale thanks Álvaro Siza Vieira for allowing this and David Chipperfield for proposing the idea.
