Bath biennale gets September start
The South West of England is set to get its very own biennale in September, with the launch of the Bath Festival of Architecture.
The 10-day event, organised by CABE commissioner Richard Feilden in collaboration with the Bath Festivals Trust, will feature a series of talks and a lighting design commission.
The biennale, supported by both the Universities of Bath and of the West of England, will also include a summer school for architects, engineers and visual artists that will produce a series of temporary structures for the festival, a major debate, and an exhibition of work by celebrated 18th-century Bath architect John Wood.
The festival will run from 17 to 26 September.
