The Curator of the Biennale Architettura 2023, Lesley Lokko, invites applications from graduate students, graduates, early career academics and emerging practitioners for the first-ever Biennale College Architettura which will run from 25 June to 22 July 2023 in Venice, Italy.
In line with the general goals of all Biennale Colleges, this first Biennale College Architettura will seek to complement and enrich the 18th International Architecture Exhibition by exploring how to place the exhibition’s central themes, decolonisation and decarbonisation, at the heart of architectural education. The process will culminate in a documentary, which will be screened as part of the exhibition.
Up to fifty participants will be selected from this International Open Call to work alongside a global cast of renowned practitioners, academics and policymakers on a range of design projects at different scales that map out new possibilities for architectural education in the coming decades. This educational experience will be thematically and physically situated amongst the 18th International Architecture Exhibition, The Laboratory of the Future, in Venice. Those participating in the College will enjoy direct access to the exhibited work of the participants of the Biennale Architettura 2023.
