1. Torre David / Gran Horizonte, by Urban Think Tank, Justin McGuirk and Iwan Baan, at the Arsenale
Winning this year's Golden Lion, the Urban Think Tank and Justin McGuirk's Torre David / Gran Horizonte not only offered a taste (quite literally) of Venezuela within this Biennale, but also addressed urban issues springing from the world's tallest squat, Torre David. Strategically placed halfway through the Corderie de l'Arsenale, the installation included a Venezuelan food canteen and plenty of photographs by Iwan Baan illustrating life in Caracas' Torre David. It also presented research produced by the organisers in collaboration with Alfredo Brillembourg & Hubert Klumpner of ETH Zurich.
