Virtually Venice
In Virtually Venice, the seven projects: Par Xien Gou Hai, The Lido, Giardini, San Marco, Fortuna Pozzo-Pozza, San Michele and The Four Seasons collectively celebrated and added to the connections between Venice and China. It began with the legendary story of Marco Polo’s meeting with the Mongol Emperor, Kublai Khan. In these portrayals of how Khan might have imagined Venice after their conversations, the city took on aspects of the East and reconfigured itself in new architectural forms. With the two protagonists metaphorically representing East and West, this research investigated the differences and similarities in cultures and identities. This project, commissioned by the British Council UK for the Venice Architecture Biennale 2004 and exhibited in the British Pavilion, is my most celebrated piece of research architecture as 'built cultural assemblage'. Output: 7 Research Projects, 4 Book Chapters, 10 Journals, and Authored Book 'Virtually Venice' (The British Council UK, 2006) ISBN 0-9527551-2-2, 224pp; Introduction: Emily Campbell (Head of Architecture British Council), Foreword: Marie Ange Brayer (Director of FRAC Centre Orleans
