The Russian Pavilion in Venice: Between Past and Future

«The Russian Pavilion in Venice: Between Past and Future» was an exhibition dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Russian pavilion at the Venice Biennale.
The exhibition was located in the Garage Project Space and consisted of three interrelated sections. The first presented archive materials devoted to the project’s preparation. Schusev’s original sketches, drafts, and studies revealed the fascinating logic behind the development of his ideas, and deepen understanding of its origins. The second part was more experimental in nature, displaying special projects designed by students of the architectural school MARCH, which used the architectural medium to attempt to reflect current trends and representations of the national idea.
