The 2018 Architecture Biennale (May 25 – November 26) will be a fascinating exhibition dedicated to ‘Freespace’. Curators Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara will emphasize the role of architecture in the choreography of daily life.
As usual, the main venues are Giardini and Arsenale, but the national and collateral events across the historic center of Venice are certainly worth a few days extra. You can find all the practical details on the website of La Biennale di Venezia.
In the coming weeks and months, I will publish several posts on the Architecture Biennale, in line with what I did last year for the Art Biennale. To prepare you for your visit, I also publish previews of the national participations and collateral events. After my visit to the Biennale, these previews have been updated with my personal review and pictures. You can find all these articles listed below.
