The Venice Biennale in Architecture is the single most important and prestigious international event in contemporary architecture. Cultural leaders, architects, artists, and nearly 150,000 visitors attend the Biennale with the expectation of discovering the cutting edge of architecture. The Biennale offers a unique opportunity to showcase Canadian excellence in architecture and provides a unique occasion to share ideas with peers from around the world. 

 

The Venice Biennale takes place primarily in the Giardini and the Arsenale in Venice. The Giardini hosts 30 national pavilions, including the Canada Pavilion, which is located in a high-profile area of the Giardini, adjacent to those of Great Britain, Germany and France, and close to those of the United States, Japan and Russia.

 

The proposed presentation should communicate excellence, innovation, and currency in contemporary Canadian architecture including buildings, landscapes and places, or in works of critical and (or) design research on architecture, landscape architecture or the urban environment.

 

Proposed projects are expected to be part of a collaborative team anchored by a cultural institution, organization, or architectural firm. The nominal applicant must be an incorporated Canadian organization, institution, or registered business.  These include, but are not limited to, architectural firms, organizations and associations, schools of architecture, artist-run-centres, galleries and museums. The organization, institution, or business must be at least 75 percent Canadian-owned and have its head office and executive located in Canada. The team must include professional expertise and experience in contemporary Canadian architecture. This includes, but is not limited to, architects, critics and curators of architecture, professors of architecture, landscape architects and urban designers. Applicants must be able to demonstrate their ability to manage the responsibilities outlined and complete a project of this nature. 

 

The submission deadline is December 6, 2010, and the results will be announced to all applicants by letter in April 2011.

 

For detailed submission requirements and all other enquiries, interested parties are to contact Brigitte Desrochers, the Canada Council program officer to receive an information package and discuss the specific challenges of this event.
