The U.S. Pavilion exhibit, Spontaneous Interventions, (winner of a 13th Venice Architecture Biennale Jury Special Mention for National Participation) is a record of 124 remakings of the city, each a deliberate commoning, a grassroots intervention to rapidly render physical some form of a collective desire for a better life.
