Bellissimo! Abodo at the Architecture Biennale 2016

Abodo Wood is pleased to be a contributor to next year’s Venice Architecture Biennale 2016.

The Biennale, an international showcase of architectural thinking, is an annual event set in a beautiful Venetian palazzo.

The exhibition will include built work as well as visionary or as yet unrealised projects, and will be accompanied by a series of cultural events and an international media programme.

The creative team is led by Dr Charles Walker and associate director Kathy Waghorn, of the University of Auckland School of Architecture and Planning, has an impressive pedigree. It includes architects Jessica Barter and Maggie Carroll (Bureaux Ltd), Jonathan Rennie (Athfield Architects) and Rewi Thompson, model maker Minka Ip, exhibition builder Stephen Brookbanks, and video production specialists Bruce Ferguson and Emma Wolf.

Tony van Raat, Commissioner of the New Zealand Exhibition for the NZIA says the Biennale — the world’s leading architectural event — is a wonderful showcase for New Zealand’s architecture and this country’s creative talent and technological ability.

“Our exhibition is a very engaging proposition that promises to out among the dozens of national exhibitions at next year’s Architecture Biennale,” Tony says.

With a theme of “Future Islands” the New Zealand room will feature some a Abodo Wood’s latest natural wood creations.
