Exhibiting at the Biennale provides a high profile global platform for Irish architecture and offers the opportunity to engage with diverse audience, international architects, curators and collaborators. It also offers a unique opportunity to stimulate discussion and influence future global trends in architecture. This is reflected by the financial support of €350,000 awarded to the selected project.
The 18th International Architecture Exhibition at Venice, La Biennale di Venezia in 2023 will be curated by Lesley Lokko and the overall theme is yet to be announced.
