The 12th edition of Biennale of Architecture will begin soon. It will be open from August 29th to November 21st and its vernissage on the 26th,27th and 28th of August at the Giardini, the Arsenal and in many points of the city.

The event will be managed by the architect Kazuyo Sejima, the first woman to conduct this international appointment. She just received the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize 2010. There will be two main projects within the 12th Exhibition: “Architecture Saturdays” and “Destination Biennale di Venezia. Universities meet in architecture”.

Architecture Saturdays is an initiative organized by the Biennale and consists in a serie of meetings with architects, critics and figures from the world of architecture in Italy and abroad. Thirty-five years after the first architecture exhibition to be held by the Biennale di Venezia. “Architecture Saturdays” intends to explore the history of the exhibitions that have been held since then, inviting the directors of those editions to a meeting with the public. Each Saturday there will be a meeting, moderated not only by the current director, Kazuyo Sejima, but also by each director of the preceding editions of the Exhibition.

With “Destination Biennale di Venezia. Universities meet in architecture”, the Biennale turns to universities and educational institutes, offering a visit to the Exhibition planned and organized by the institutions and representing a significant didactic and training experience.
