UK architecture professor edits book to be presented at the Venice Biennale

May 29, 2014   |   School

UK/CoD Architecture Professor Wallis Miller co-edited Exhibiting Architecture, a book that investigates historical and contemporary practices of displaying architecture. Exploring questions of circulation and temporality, issues of institution and canon, and the discourse and politics of architectural spaces on exhibit, the book addresses the ambiguous status of architecture as an object of display, and reveals the centrality of the exhibition in defining and redefining the notion of architecture and its history.
 
The book will be presented in architect Sverre Fehn's Nordic Pavilion as part of the opening festivities at this year's Venice Architecture Biennale. Professor Miller co-edited the book with Professors Thordis Arhennius and Mari Lending from the Oslo School of Architecture and Design and Jérémie McGowan, Curator of Architecture at the National Museum in Oslo.
