The French Pavilion at the Venice Biennale Architecture event addresses the idea of modernity, and whether or not developments over the last hundred years have been helpful or detrimental to human development.

The title of the piece is 'Modernity, Promise or Menace?' and consists of four different exhibitions. The entire piece looks at the intersection of architecture in modernity and society as a whole, and how these rely on one another and effect each other too. The exhibitions are actually presented in miniature form, so people aren't so much walking through these designs as simply observing them from above, which also gives them a different perspective on everything. Hopefully the French Pavilion will make visitors question modernity and architecture in the current day and age.
