The Venice Biennale, an international architecture exhibition, is a showcase of work by leading architects and designers from across the world.

It is a platform where invited architects express their creativity and share ideas around a provocation or theme. With a different theme announced for each Biennale, the exhibition this year revolves around the theme ‘Free Space’. The word describes a generosity of spirit and a sense of humanity which is at the core of the work on display.

The 16th International Architecture Exhibition, runs from May 26th to November 25th 2018 in different venues in Venice.
