Architecture Biennale, Italy

by John Morgan Studio
2012
 
 
The 13th Venice Architecture Biennale invited John Morgan Studio to create a graphic identity for ‘Common Ground’.
 
 
It celebrates interconnected architectural culture and explores the things architects have in common, from the conditions of practice, to influences, collaborations and histories.
 
 
The body of work spans four publications, exhibition graphics, signage, posters, printed matter and, more unusually, banners for bridges and wraps for Vaporettos.
 
 
The signs speak not in an Italian voice but in a Venetian dialect.
 
 
The zinc stencils were manufactured by Thévenon & Cie. The stencil was both sprayed and paint-stamped using a vinyl mask throughout the Giardini central pavilion and the Arsenale.
 
 
The ideas behind the Biennale have been published in a critical reader, a book of essays bound in brick red with endpapers in marble grey.
 
 
The photographer Juergen Teller was introduced to record and celebrate the Vernissage in magazine form.
