The 16th International Architecture Exhibition takes place in Venice from 26 May to 25 November 2018 (Preview May 24th and 25th) at the Giardini and at the Arsenale as well as at various venues in the city. The main exhibition, entitle «Freespace», is curated by Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara

For the first time, Pro Helvetia chose the Swiss contribution by means of a competition. Eligible for participation were architects and interdisciplinary teams operating in the field of architecture. After a two-phase competition on a selective procedure basis, Pro Helvetia decided to enthrust the realization of the Swiss participation in the 16th Architecture Biennale of Venice in 2018 to Alessandro Bosshard, Li Tavor, Matthew van der Ploeg and Ani Vihervaara with their project «Svizzera 240: House Tour». 

«Salon Suisse», a programme of talks and events supplementing the exhibition at the Swiss Pavilion will again be taking place at the Palazzo Trevisan degli Ulivi – further details will be announced soon.
