Island, British Pavilion, Venice Biennale
In collaboration with Marcus Taylor Venice, Italy 2018
Client: The British Council
The biennial commission to curate the British Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale is awarded by the British Council. In 2018, the pavilion was curated by Caruso St John Architects together with the artist Marcus Taylor. The concept of the pavilion was a response to the Biennale curator’s theme of “Freespace”, and to the important questions and political context of the time.
