British Council begins hunt for Venice Biennale proposals

  • Comment

[Open call for proposals will launch on 10 January 2012] The British Council is seeking proposals from architects, students, writers, critics and academics for the British Pavilion at the 13th Venice Architecture Biennale

The exhibition is expected to focus on ‘what makes great architecture’, looking at construction, housing, procurement, competitions and clients.

On 10 January 2012 an open call for participation and proposals will be launched followed by a series of discussions about the brief.

In March the best proposals will be selected. Ten individuals or teams will then travel to unearth case studies in locations around the world.

British Council director of architecture, design, fashion Vicky Richardson said:We have many good designers in the UK, but the systems and structures surrounding architecture need change. Everyone who has travelled will recognise the feeling of envy when you see a good idea. The British Pavilion aims to gather the best of these and bring them back to the UK.’
