The Snow Show Venice (Zing Magazine Books 2003) presents the collaborative artistic project on display in Palazzo Zorzi at the 50th Venice Biennale in June–July 2003. The project, curated and commissioned by Lance Fung, brought together artists and architects who worked in pairs and who  produced thirty structures made of natural materials such as snow and ice. The invited architects included Tadao Ando, Shigery Ban, Diller + Scofidio, Heikkinen & Komonen, Zaha Hadid, Juhani Pallasmaa, Greg Lynn, Snøhetta, Steven Holl, and Coop Himmelb(l)au among others.

The pivotal power of The Snow Show is that it’s a laboratory for the collaboration as a productive direction for the visual and practical arts. The arts community has confronted the question: Where is the new art, and how do recent events affect the arts? (…) The intensely collaborative discourse developed within The Snow Show questions the fabric of creative thought and the way our society approaches its problems. This discourse is formed through the pairing of individuals whose work and outlooks are clearly disparate, and having them focus on a problem that neither can dominate. What happens when creative minds have to be focused on a single problem in a symbiotic effort?
– Lance Fung, The Snow Show Venice, June–July 2003, Palazzo Zorzi, Venice, Italy (Zing Magazine Books, 2003), excerpt from the Curatorial Statement

The text is in English. The book is illustrated with project drawings.
