The 13th International Architecture Exhibition entitled Common Ground, directed by David Chipperfield and organized by la Biennale di Venezia chaired by Paolo Baratta, will open to the public from Wednesday August 29th until Sunday November 25th 2012, at the Giardini della Biennale and at the Arsenale.

The Preview will take place on August 27th and 28th, the awards ceremony and inauguration will be held on Wednesday August 29th, 2012.

The Exhibition will be complemented by 55 National Participations organized, as usual, in the Pavilions at the Giardini, at the Arsenale and in the city of Venice. Five nations will be participating for the first time: Angola, the Republic of Kosovo, Kuwait, Peru and Turkey.

Common Ground will consist of a single exhibition through the Central Pavilion at the Giardini and the Arsenale: David Chipperfield will present an Exhibition with 58 projects, by architects, photographers, artists, critics and scholars. Many of them responded to his invitation with original proposals and installations expressly created for this Biennale, involving in their projects other colleagues with whom they share a Common Ground. There will be a total of 104 participants.

The Italian Pavilion at the Arsenale will be organized by the Ministry for the Cultural Heritage and Activities together with PaBAAC – the General Direction for the Landscape, Fine Arts, Architecture and Contemporary Art.

For the third consecutive year, and following the success of the earlier editions, the Biennale will present once again a program dedicated to Universities and known as the Biennale Sessions for the 13th International Architecture Exhibition. Addressed to Universities, Fine Arts Academies, research and educational institutions in the field of architecture, visual arts and kindred areas, the goal of the Biennale Sessions is to encourage visits to the exhibition by groups of at least 50 students and teachers who will be assisted in the organization of their journey and stay. They will be able to organize seminars in a space made available to them free of charge by the Biennale.

In addition, the Biennale will organize a rich program of Conversations about Architecture, meetings dedicated to themes, scenarios and specific architects, scheduled for the months of October and November.

During the 13th International Architecture Exhibition, two online competitions will be launched on the website www.labiennalechannel.org:
COMMON GROUND / Photography: for the best photo of the Exhibition (this competition is open exclusively to accredited photographers) and COMMON GROUND / Essay: for the best critical essay on the Exhibition.
