Design-oriented New Zealand companies will this year be able to tell their stories to a large and informed international audience at the world’s leading architecture event, the Venice Architecture Biennale.
A group of companies and business organisations have joined an initiative to promote New Zealand as a centre of innovative design and manufacture at the six-month long Biennale, which is launched over 26 and 27 May and runs until the end of November.
The campaign, which is supported by the New Zealand Government through Manatū Taonga, the Ministry for Culture and Heritage’s Cultural Diplomacy International Programme, focuses on the specially curated New Zealand Room at the Palazzo Bollani.
An acclaimed documentary about the design and construction of a unique cultural building for the Tūhoe iwi will be be screened in Venice this month at the beginning of the city’s famous Architecture Biennale.
Ever the Land tells the story of the building of Te Wharehou o Tūhoe at Tāneatua in the Ureweras, a project of huge significance for Tūhoe.
