Fifth Year Architecture
For this year’s Architecture Biennale the theme by Grafton Architects was set as ‘Freespace’, inquire into the spaces between buildings that people move through and occupy.
Given The Happenstance responded directly to this theme by creating its own freespace within Palazzo Zenobio, ‘Running threads through Venice’ is a record and exploration of how people’s movements through the city would eventually lead them to the space created by The Happenstance team and what other freespaces they had encountered along the way.
