there are 61 national pavilions exhibiting as part of this year’s Venice Biennale, so it’s nearly impossible to see them all. The 15th Venice Architecture is curated by Chilean architect Alejando Aravena . The theme of his exhibition, Reporting From The Front, aims to shine a light on global issues that architects have the power to influence or solve. The national participants were encouraged to also explore this theme in their pavilions, which are on show until 27 November 2016. Topics covered range from the future of the home to the refugee crisis and the importance of the swimming pool. The majority of the pavilions at located in the Giardini – one of the two main Biennale venues. A further 20 can be found at the other venue, the Arsenale, while the remaining 11 are dotted around the city.
