Turkish Pavilion Is One Of The “The 10 Best Pavilions” At Venice Architecture Bienale

Venice 15th Edition of the Venice Architecture Biennale, which is a very important architectural event all over the world is held between 28th May and 27th November 2016. The occasion titled ‘Reporting from the Font’ directed by Chilean architect Alejandro Aravena, the winner of this year’s Pritzker Prize includes the main places in Arsenale and Giardini and 62 pavilions all over the city. And there are good news for Turkey; Turkey Pavilion has been selected one of the “10 Best National Pavilions” with the project named ‘Darzanà’ by one of the pioneering art platform in the USA, ARtsy.


The Turkish Pavilion references the affinities of The Republic of Venice and the Ottoman Empire, that were military rivals and commercial trading partners for a long time. Objects and detritus found in the former ship-building neighborhood have been fashioned into a boat-shaped assemblage on view in Venice, dubbed a “baştarda” by curators Feride Çiçekoğlu, Mehmet Kütükçüoğlu, and Ertuğ Uçar. Çiçekçioğlu says: “ Baştarda is not just architecture, it is related to the language and words, to a journey.” It is possible to listen to Çiçekçioğlu by clicking here.
