Congratulations to Manijeh Verghese and Madeleine Kessler who have been announced as leading on the British Pavillion for the 2020 Venice Architecture Biennale.  We were pleased to be shortlisted this year. You can read our proposal here, which we worked on together with our friends at Apparata and the writer and editor Seb Emina. The proposal centres around our mutual interest in the culture and architectural significance of British Public Houses, from Wetherspoons to pubs as community centres. 

The British Council are commissioners of the British Pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia 2020.
