United States of America: American Framing

The United States Pavilion presents “American Framing” at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition Venice Biennale 2021, as an exhibition that explores the ubiquity and aesthetic power of wood-framed construction in American architecture. Organized by the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC), ‘American Framing’ is commissioned by Paul Preissner, Associate Professor at UIC, and co-curated by Preissner and Paul Andersen, Clinical Associate Professor at UIC. The exhibition is on view to the public May 22 through November 21, 2021.

The exhibition reflects on wood-framed construction as emblematic of American ideology, from its history and culture to its utility and design potential. It takes a multi-disciplinary approach to the material, exploring wood framing through built structures, models, photographs, and furniture.
