LUXE Travellers in Venice, Italy, will be able to visit the 2020 International Architecture Exhibition between 23rd May and 29th November 2020.
This year's exhibition is titled "How will we live together?" and will run at the Giardini, the Arsenale and Forte Marghera, and will be organised by La Biennale di Venezia.
114 participants are included in this year's competition coming from 46 countries with increased representation from Africa, Latin America, and Asia. In addition to the invited participants, the Biennale Architettura 2020 also includes "Stations+Cohabitats", based on the themes of the Exhibition and developed by universities around the world.
In addition, La Biennale di Venezia and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London will present the Applied Arts Pavilion Special Project titled "British Mosques" at the Arsenale, Sale d’Armi. Collaborating with author and architect Shahed Saleem, the pavilion looks at the self-built and often undocumented world of adapted mosques. Three case studies will examine the Brick Lane mosque, a former Protestant chapel then Synagogue; Old Kent Road mosque housed in a former pub; and Harrow Central mosque, a purpose-built space that sits next door to the converted terraced house it used to occupy.
