PLANE—SITE, with archipinion, has produced a series of 90-second videos that feature interviews with the curators of four pavilions at this year's Venice Architecture Biennale: France, Germany, the Nordic countries, and the United States.

Although most of the Biennale's media attention, World-Architects included, came around its opening in May, late August marks the halfway point in the Biennale's six-month run. So what better time to revisit the Biennale, specifically a few of its national pavilions? Watch the four videos by PLANE—SITE and archipinion below.
