• Found in Translation: Architecture, Land, Landscape, Language

14 October 2023, 2pm at the Docks Cantieri Cucchini, Venice

2125 Campo Tana, Castello, Venice
(opposite the entrance to the Arsenale)

Hosted by Scotland + Venice
Curated by A Fragile Correspondence and Dualchas

This event is a part of the public programme supporting A Fragile Correspondence, a collateral event of the 18th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice, created by the Architecture Fringe, -ism magazine and /other.

Expanding on the themes of architecture, land, landscape and language common to both A Fragile Correspondence and Dualchas’s presentation in the Arsenale as well as many other presentations at this year’s Exhibition, the event creates a space for dialogue between a range of different projects – all united through their interest in architecture as a social, cultural and political activity. This dialogue asks how a closer reading of land and landscape can help architecture adapt to the changing world of the climate emergency, an evolving profession, and a recalibration of what it means to practice architecture.

Through an afternoon of talks, panel discussions and debates, with a diverse range of speakers, these ideas will be explored from multiple perspectives across La Biennale. We will also be paying a visit to the Lithuanian Pavilion as part of the programmed event. The afternoon will end with some light refreshments.
