Favourite thing about Venice: Gelateria, prosecco and wandering down Via Garibaldi of an evening
Biennale highlight: Having Norman Foster walk by me in the Pavilion and being completely impassive because I didn’t recognise him. Also, meeting and socialising with some of the Venice Takeaway exhibitors.
Favourite Pavilion/s: The Danish Pavilion: ‘Possible Greenland’, if only it weren’t sponsored by Shell, otherwise the USA Pavilion because of all the ongoing projects and case studies, they were truly inspirational and something that I can takeaway from Venice and prompt me to take heed to improve my own locale. I still have a lot to see though!
I also blog and take photos here.
