Published on the occasion of Home Economics, the 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. OK-RM collaborated closely with the curators Shumi Bose, Jack Self and Finn Williams, as well as the exhibition architects Hesselbrand, on the visual identity and design of the pavilion.
The book acts as both a documentation of the exhibition and also an extension of the five proposals and the curatorial theme. The book was edited by Jack Self with Shumi Bose and Finn Williams, commissioned by the British Council and co-published by The Spaces and REAL.
