The 2016 Biennale, titled Reporting From the Front, focused on public interest design and featured exhibits by big names in the field such as Alejandro Aravena, Sanaa, Francis Kere, and Rural Studio. Honestly, each exhibit could be an entire post! If you are interested in learning about each exhibit you can purchase the Reporting From the Front books online. There are three areas of the Biennale, the Arsenale, Giardini main building, and the country pavilions within the Giardini. This post shares photos from the Arsenale section of the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale. The last few photos show recycled building materials from previous Biennales.
