Architecture Biennale Venice 2018


26 May - 25 November 2018


Venice Architecture Biennale

The Venice Architecture Biennale is one of the most important design events of the year. The theme for this year's edition is Freespace, a title that celebrates the ability of this discipline to enrich people's lives through the designed space, free from political or social conditioning.

The curators of this edition – Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara of the firm Grafton Architects, based in Dublin – have selected works and proposals from all over the world that are capable of bringing out this truly unique power of architecture. The selected projects are based on plays with natural elements available to everyone, such as light, wind and gravity. Together with the president of the Venice Biennale, Paolo Baratta, the curators will also choose the best pavilion among the national and international projects in competition, assigning the winner the coveted Golden Lion.

New Opening - UniFor Showroom Paris

On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, UniFor is restoring and renewing the historic showroom of its French branch, designed by Afra and Tobia Scarpa in 1979. The newly renovated spaces has been inaugurated during Paris Design Week, in celebration of both UniFor’s first 50 years - the history of which is illustrated in a prestigious book published by Skira, “UniFor. A Commitment to Architecture” - and its 40 years on the French market at its historic and prestigious Paris location on Rue des Saint-Peres. It was 1978 when the Molteni family founded UniFor France and entrusted Afra and Tobia Scarpa with the task of transforming the former residential apartment at 6 Rue des Saints-Pères into spaces suitable for receiving its clients and presenting the UniFor collection. The showroom was launched the following year. The renovation project, overseen by the architect Simone Agresta, leaves Afra and Tobia Scarpa's original project intact while reinterpreting the spaces in a modern key
