Clerkenwell Biennale set to emulate Venice festival

  • Comment

London's Clerkenwell could become the venue of a second architecture biennale to rival that of Venice.

Plans are in the pipeline to launch a major international architecture festival in the fashionable central London district - the home to many 'leading-edge' architects such as Zaha Hadid and Wilkinson Eyre.

The Clerkenwell Biennale could begin as soon as next year - timed to alternate with the exhibition in Venice.

Architecture communications firm Wordsearch is currently drumming up support among the architectural world, from the 'golden oldies' such as Pritzker Prize winner Glen Murcutt to the 'cutting edge', including young Dutch and Norwegian practices.

Wordsearch's Peter Murray said he was confident the idea would get off the ground and that there would be sufficient financial support within the industry.
