Ravensbourne’s Department of Architecture exhibits at The European Cultural Centre Architecture Biennale
Ravensbourne will be exhibiting alongside Desitecture, a practise run by Ravensbourne’s associate dean for the Department of Architecture, at Palazzo Mora as part of the European Cultural Centre's Architecture Biennale until Sunday 25 November.
The Architecture Biennale is an important event in the global art and design calendar, showcasing work from a wide range of disciplines. Hosted by the European Cultural Centre, the theme of this year’s Biennale is ‘Time Space Existence’, giving “the possibility for each architect to focus on these fundamental, existential questions”.
A wide range of works from architects, photographers, sculptors and universities from all over the world will be on show. Ravensbourne’s display will feature work from all of the Department of Architecture’s bachelors courses, as well as work being developed by students on the new MA Architecture course.
Commenting on the exhibition, Layton Reid, Associate Dean for the Department of Architecture said: “It is a real honour and accolade to be invited to exhibit among these great stars of architecture and design, including the European Culture Foundation, MVRDV and Daniel Libeskind. It establishes our position as players on a world stage, and world leaders in education.”
Thomas Christie, a student on Ravensbourne’s BA (Hons) Architecture course added: “Being asked to join Desitecture in exhibiting work that links between academia and practice is awesome. It is also the first international public exhibition Ravensbourne is displaying as a university. It’s a really great opportunity to have our work on display for six months and to be seen by a global audience — not many people get that kind of exposure.”
