Claire Fontaine's art installation 'Unbuilding' explores the construction and deconstruction of architecture. Located in the 12th Architecture Biennale in Venice, Italy, the French artist draws our attention to debilitated spaces that have become useful in other ways besides its original purpose.

Centered around the film ‘Counterpoison,' Claire Fontaine delves into an abandoned Glasgow theater. Wrecked and ravaged by local youth, it now provides much-needed shelter to wild animals.
