Every two years, national pavilions transform historic Venice, demonstrating technical and cultural innovation in building design and the response of architects to major international challenges in contemporary society.
This year the theme of Freespace, curated by Dublin’s Grafton Architects – Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara – provided the opportunity to celebrate “a generosity of spirit and a sense of humanity at the core of architecture’s agenda, focusing on the quality of space itself”.
Join us in conversation with curators, architects and guests representing Northern Ireland, Ireland and the British Pavilion. Chaired by Dr. Sarah Lappin from Queen’s University and featuring a live performance from HIVE Choir.
Panellists include: Marcus Taylor (UK), Ian McKnight (NI), Laurence Lord (Ire), Alice Casey (Ire)
Programmed as part of Open House Belfast by PLACE in partnership with Belfast International Arts Festival. Supported by British Council.
