One of the highlights in the Arsenale is the "Pictograms" installation, curated by Swiss architect Valerio Olgiati.







A large table sits in the middle of the space paralleled by a white drop ceiling. A linear light fixture illuminates the small images on the table, inspirational images selected by the various architects that Olgiati brought together. The size of the images, the height of the ceiling, and even the height of the table work together to make it an intimate experience. One gets close to "views into the mind of the architect's visual world," as Olgiati intended. Also, the space effectively balances the exhbitions two poles of display, acting as both an immersive environment and a collection of artifacts.
