FAT Architecture, Crimson Architectural Historians and Owen Hatherley have been selected to curate the British Pavilion at the 2014 Venice Biennale next June. The chosen team will respond to Rem Koolhaas’ theme “Absorbing Modernity: 1914-2014” with a project titled “A Clockwork Jerusalem.”

Vicky Richardson, British Council, said: "We look forward to working with FAT, Crimson and Owen Hatherley on ‘A Clockwork Jerusalem’. The Selection Committee felt their approach was both challenging and poetic, and that their work will make an important contribution to understanding modernity in British architecture."

2014 British Pavilion Selection Committee: 

  • David Bickle, Partner, Hawkins\Brown
  • Adrian Forty, Professor of Architectural History, the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL
  • Edwin Heathcote, Architecture and Design Critic for the Financial Times
  • Philip Long, Director, V&A at Dundee
  • Irena Murray, Architectural Historian and Senior Research Fellow, Royal Institute of British Architects
  • Jane and Louise Wilson, artists   
  • Chair: Vicky Richardson, Director of Architecture, Design, Fashion, British Council

We will keep you posted as more details become available. In the meantime, watch this exclusive ArchDaily interview with Sam Jacob from FAT.
