Scotland, a country within the United Kingdom, will be showcasing a projected entitled Prospect North at the forthcoming Venice Biennale. Curated collaboratively between the Scottish Government, Architecture and Design Scotland, Creative Scotland,and the British Council Scotland, the installation will be designed by Lateral North, Dualchas Architects, and Soluis. As reported by the Architects' Journal, the show is set to examine "Scotland’s relationship with its northern neighbours" by focusing "on people and place, [and] looking at how communities from the Northern Isles of Orkney to the central belt of Scotland are using grassroot action."
"Using what has been described as a ‘micro to macro’ approach, the installation will use innovative mapping strategies, portraits, and evocative imagery to highlight Scotland’s place in the emerging northern economic region."
The exhibition will be on display from the 26th May until the 25th June at Ludoteca Santa Maria Ausiliatrice before returning to Scotland for a nationwide tour as part of Scotland’s Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design.
