We were lucky that the Venice Architecture Biennale took place during our visit, and of course weather that lent itself to strolling through Il Giardini and more. For us the strongest representatives offered ideas, facts and statistics and of course fun! Because no visit to the Science Museum in London went without pressing a few buttons, and it seems little has changed since we’ve grown up. The opener, Switzerland offered black and white photos blown up to act as wallpaper, but really Russia with their QR codes were one of our favourites.
The first room, full of convex glass, featured back-lit photos proving that a space really can entice you into learning.
The detail in the winning Japan entry was astounding. This is one of maybe forty sculptures, a comment on the state and rebuilding of the country post-earthquake.
Engraved figurines play table football reppin’ Australia’s pavillion.
And the typography on each building was worth a look every time.
Aperol Spritz and lunch, a fine way to spend every day.
