Great Britain: The Garden of Privatised Delights

The British Council presents “The Garden of Privatised Delights” at the British Pavilion for the 17th International Architecture Exhibition Venice Biennale, running from 22 May – 21 November 2021.

The exhibition explores the privatization of public space in the UK today, and considers the role that design and architecture can take in supporting a more inclusive future. Working with five teams of architects, designers, and researchers, curators Manijeh Verghese and Madeleine Kessler propose new ideas for ownership of, and access to, privatized public space – from the pub to the playground, common land to the garden square, the high street to facial recognition technology. Each room within the British Pavilion presents a new model for the future of public space through an immersive installation, designed to engage us in the debate.
