Jeremy Till to curate British Pavilion in Venice

  • Comment
Jeremy Till, the Sheffield School of Architecture professor, is set to be unveiled as the curator of the British Pavilion at next year's Venice Architecture Biennale.

The academic will oversee the space, which the British Council has dictated should focus on the work of practices outside London.

It is understood that the British Council also shortlisted Peter Murray's company Wordsearch and the Architecture Foundation for the role.

Till's long-standing connection with Sheffield will have given him an edge, the British Council probably having picked him for his knowledge of the Northern scene.

He will succeed Peter Cook, whose work in 2004 on the pavilion won mixed reviews from most critics.
