Venice's Giardini di Castello has been home to the exhibition pavilions of the International Art Biennale since 1895. As part of the thirteenth Architecture Biennale, various architects, philosophers, art historians, and artists were asked to write an essay on the pavilions. The text is accompanied both by an installation presenting the authors' descriptions and by Gabriele Basilico's photographs of the buildings.
