The Edinburgh-based firm Reiach and Hall will be representing Scotland at the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale. The show will showcase Scotland's rich modernist heritage, featuring buildings such as Gillespie, Kidd & Coia's St Peter's Seminary in Cardross and the church designs of Reiach and Hall's founder Alan Reiach, focusing on the positive aspects of these buildings which are often seen negatively by the Scottish public. "Certainly buildings from that period get a difficult press - the stories about the Red Road flats and so on don't really help that - but we hope to explain and examine the real optimism of that period" said Neil Gillespie, Director of Reiach and Hall.

Scotland's contribution at the biennale will be based in the UK pavilion for a month-long residency, as well as a show and presentations at other locations around Venice.
