The pavilion exhibited four works by Pritzker Prize winner Alvaro Siza (born 1933) on the theme of social housing--Campo di Marte (Venice), Schilderswijk (The Hague), Schlesisches Tor (Berlin) and Bairro da Bouca (Porto)--revealing his collaborative experience with the local inhabitants and unique understanding of the European city and citizenship. These projects resulted in the creation of neighborhood spaces aimed at a more tolerant, multicultural society, a subject important to the current European political agenda. This book unveils the curatorial process and the display of these works in Venice. Included are images of Siza's recent visits to the neighborhoods, plus a presentation of the changes triggered by immigration, ghettoization, gentrification and "touristification."
