Very recently, European architects in Prada dinner jackets and Le Coq Sportif have been here, reciting statistics from Dutch coffee-table exhibition catalogues, of the new avant-garde status of third world metropoles carelessly breaking all urban records, proportions, and aesthetic standards. Western concepts and terminologies, they say, trying to sound apocalyptic, ominous, touched, enthusiastic and nonchalant at the same time, can no longer do justice to the many Tehrans of this shifting world.-Tirdad Zolghadr
Ricky Burdett’s curatorship of the Biennale this year was all about context. And by and large it was about the kind of massive context that architects cannot affect. Economic prosperity, crime, national and international mobility, ecology, literacy and population growth were the main parameters the exhibition was interested in, all things that more typically occupy geographers, sociologists and politicians.-Kieran Long, ICON
