The British Council is now open to proposals for the British Pavilion at the 18th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia 2023.

The British Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale aims to create debate that both challenges and influences the future of British architecture.

We are looking for bold and imaginative proposals, which encourage participation, stimulate discussion and offer a new experience of, and perspective on, contemporary British architecture and how it can respond to global challenges.

The successful proposal will be one which addresses a compelling theme and presents a clear exhibition concept and design. The proposal for the British Pavilion must demonstrate and communicate the chosen theme with impact and clarity and have the flexibility to be experienced both physically and digitally by a global and diverse audience.
