Australian Pavilion in Venice
Venice Exhibition Building, Italy – curated by Denton Corker Marshall
7 May 2015
Australian Pavilion in Venice Exhibition
Design: Denton Corker Marshall Architects
Location: Venice, Italy
The design of the new Australian Pavilion in Venice is of the utmost simplicity, architecturally expressed as a white box within a black box.
The exterior, a black granite envelope, features large operable panels which open up to ‘reveal’ the interior or to provide outlook or natural light. The operable panels also allow for the otherwise solid, singular object to take on a changing character depending on the requirements of a particular exhibition.
The exhibition space is a pure rectilinear white space of an almost perfect square proportion, where art is the focus.
Entry to the two level concrete and steel structure, is via a steel ramp leading to a floating concrete terrace overlooking the Rio dei Giardini canal.
The new Australian Pavilion is the first 21st century pavilion in the Giardini della Biennale, finished for the 56th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia, in May 2015.
With completion of the Pavilion, an ambitious new chapter will begin for the representation of Australian art and architecture internationally.
