Spontaneous Interventions at the 2012 Architecture Bienalle

I am excited to finally announce PublicAdCampaign's participation in the 2012 Spontaneous Interventions Exhibition at the Venice Bienalle for Architecture. Having just received the list of participating projects it seems we are in amazing company with projects that have inspired us and motivated us to continue our unique brand of urban activism. A full list of participating projects can be found at the spontaneous Interventions website [HERE]

A big thank you to the Institute for Urban Design
"Spontaneous Interventions captures one of the most compelling contemporary urban trends, wherein individuals are taking it upon themselves to create projects that expand the amenities, comfort, functionality, inclusiveness, safety, and sustainability of cities. From parklets to community farms, guerrilla bike lanes to urban repair squads, outdoor living rooms to pop-up markets, sharing networks, and temporary architecture, Spontaneous Interventions highlights viable citizen-led alternatives to traditional top-down urban revitalization tactics. Together, these projects offer an opportunity to examine the history of the American city, painting a critical and dynamic portrait of its most pressing issues today and a vision of its future. At heart, Spontaneous Interventions is a reflection of country’s complex attitudes towards civic participation, social justice, and the built environment."
