Talking Point (#16) Venice Architecture Biennale

PARK(ing) Day coincides in both timing and theme with the 2008 Venice Architecture Biennale. Running from 14 September - 23 November 2008, the 11th International Architecture Exhibition is titled, 'Out There. Architecture Beyond Building'.

The Venice Biennale is one of the world’s most important forums for the discussion of the issues that are faced, not just by architects and designers, but by society as a whole: "the form of our cities take and the way we live will play a big role in determining the future of our planet."

The 11th Architecture Biennale Venice will present site-specific installations, manifestos, landscapes and scenes of an architecture beyond building. It will also exhibit experimental architecture from around the world and highlight experimental aspects of current practice.
