Venice Biennale Sessions
The Venice Architecture Biennale is widely considered the world's most significant exposition of international architecture. Naturally, the United States has a permanent pavilion on the Biennale grounds.
During the course of the Biennale, educational programs, referred to as the "Biennale Sessions" are offered by an international array of universities. This year, ISU's Department of Architecture was invited to offer an educational program, which will consist of a three-day student workshop addressing temporary shelter for refugee and disaster relief in architecture and a one-day colloquium addressing issues related to agency and social responsibility of architects. In addition to the academic work the students will carry out, they will see first hand the work of internationally renowned architects as well as have the opportunity to come into contact with professionals in the field or architecture and design.
Descriptions of the workshop and colloquium are available here: Biennale.
