The appointment at the temporary Australian Pavilion – Cloud Space, at the Biennale Giardini, is with the Creative Director, Rene Van Meeuwen, he will take participants on a tour around Venice highlighting the geo-positioned buildings and telling their story. Each of the projects has a place in the broader narrative of the 14th International Architecture Exhibition with a deeper focus on architecture in Australia. Van Meeuwen will use the walk as a way of illuminating the understanding of each building. However he will also use the discussion as a forum for participation.
