The Bricks between Venice and Samarkand: Emblem of Uzbekistan’s Architecture


The emblem of Uzbekistan’s architecture is the brick, which narrates the millennia-old history of an ancestral people. Now, that clump of earth is in transit to the lagoon city, taking center stage at the 18th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, within the Uzbek pavilion resembling a labyrinth. It recreates the qalas, the ancient towers of this once-distant land, now increasingly connected to the new Silk Road.
