Home Economics

British Pavilion, Venice Architecture Biennale 2016

Visual essay of the Home Economics exhibition presented by the British Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2016. The exhibition responds to curator Alejandro Aravena’s theme Reporting from the Front by tackling the frontline of British architecture: the home. Home Economics presents five new models for domestic life curated through five periods of time – Hours, Days, Months, Years and Decades. The book acts as both a documentation of the exhibition and also an extension of the five proposals of the curatorial theme.

The book is designed by OK-RM, edited by Jack Self with Shumi Bose and Finn Williams, commissioned by the British Council and co-published by The Spaces and REAL.
