The Museum of Architecture and Design (MAO) in Ljubljana, Slovenia has announced that the project, Home at Arsenale, will be presented in the Slovenia Pavilion at the 15th International Biennale in Venice.

The project, curated by Aljosa Dekleva and Tina Gregoric, responds to the Biennale’s title, Reporting From the Front, by creating a "curated library" that addresses topics of home and dwelling as social and environmental issues.

“The curators conceived a site-specific inhabitable spatial wooden structure, an abstract compact home performing as a curated library that operates as a platform for exploring the concepts of home and dwelling during the exhibition and beyond," states a press release.

Architects, artists, critics, and curators from various backgrounds will contribute to the library with ten books addressing the ideas of home and dwelling from their perspectives. Ultimately, however, the installation—with around 300 books—will relocate to the Museum of Architecture and Design in Ljubljana.
