top instagram picks from the venice biennale, 2018

Every now and then, Venice opens up its arms and uncurls to make way for new structures and spaces that are intriguing. The kind that can make one contemplate about certain concepts they thought they understood. The Venice Biennale being held since 1980, is a dream come true for anyone passionate about architecture and spaces. The Venice Biennale currently being held from May 26th to November 25th, 2018 at the Giardini and the Arsenale in Venice, is based on the theme of ‘Free Space’ this year. It has been curated by Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara and organized by La Biennale di Venezia which is an arts organisation based in Venice.

The exhibition has 71 participants and it is interesting is to see how each one has interpreted the concept of ‘Freespace’ in their own unique design sense. We’ve rounded up our top Instagram picks from the Biennale –
