KPA’s Marc Spadaccini Heading for Venice Architecture Biennale – Australian Exhibition

We are excited to announce that KPA’s Associate Marc Spadaccini has been selected, for the second time, as an Australian representing volunteer for the Venice Architecture Biennale – Australian Exhibition from the 5th – 30th of September, 2016.

“The Pool is Australia’s exhibition for the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale, curated by Aileen Sage and Michelle Tabet.
The Pool is a lens through which to explore Australian cultural identity. Be they natural or manmade, inland or coastal, temporary or permanent, the creative directors will invite visitors to the new DCM designed pavilion to explore the pools of Australia in all their forms. From pools of necessity to the pools of excess, the pool is a key architectural device, a memory and also a setting. It has the unique ability to evoke both the sacred and the profane. It also aptly represents a distinctively Australian democratic and social space – a great leveller of difference.”
