2018 Venice Biennale

We’ve just returned from a short trip to the 2018 Venice Architectural Biennale and Verona, which was both inspiring and refreshing! 

Highlights included:- some 8000 handmade encaustic tiles made by Granby Workshop, laid within the Biennale’s central pavillion; the perfect alignment of shadow and light falling on the Swedish Pavilion; a trip to savour the rich detailing of Scarpa’s Castelveccio and last but not least - we were fortunate to attend an extraordinary musical performance within the depths of a quarry in rural Vicenza, conducted by Michael Nyman… a most moving experience that heightened all the senses!
