The Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia has nominated Christian Kerez, a Venezuela-born, Swiss architect, to represent Switzerland at the 15th Architecture Biennial in Venice in 2016. The exhibition will be curated by Swiss art historian Sandra Oehy, and will be on display at the Biennial from May 28 to November 27, 2016. Switzerland will also be represented by <<Salon Suisse>>, a platform for discussion and debate on contemporary art and architecture.

Kerez studied at ETH Zürich and has been teaching there as a Professor of Architecture and Design since 2009. Kerez “has gained international recognition for his highly conceptual yet transparent approach in search of a new architectural spatial experience, which he aims to further explore with his project at the Swiss Pavilion in the Giardini della Biennale.” Some of his most famous works include his residential project House with One Wall, a commercial tower building in Zhengzhou, China, a large-scale social housing development project in Brazil, and recently a school in Leutschenbach, Switzerland.
