The Russian Pavilion in Venice: Between Past and Future


Exhibition ‘The Russian Pavilion in Venice: Between Past and Future’ is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Russian pavilion at the Venice Biennale.

The exhibition was held at the Garage Project Space and consisted of two 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. 

Custom designed triple glass panels present original archive documents and display their reverse sides, many of which contain sketches and notes by the architect Alexey Shchusev.

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.
