The first building to be constructed in Venice in the past two decades, Denton Corker Marshall's Australian Pavilion will welcome its first visitors on May 9, as part of the 56th Venice Biennale.

Envisioned by the architects as a "simple yet confident, memorable garden pavilion... timeless but with vitality, tactility and materiality that [invites] curiosity and engagement," the project is located in the historic Giardini, and is Venice's only waterfront pavilion. Replacing Philip Cox's 1988 temporary structure, the pavilion features a white interior exhibition space allowing art to be the main focal point, and in which the work of Australian photographic artist Fiona Hall will be displayed upon the pavilion's opening in May.
