Starting next week Architecture for Humanity will be showcased at three venues in Venice. The most important of these is the unveiling of the winners of the 2011 Open Architecture Challenge: Unrestricted Access. We are currently recreating a military bunker in the heart of the Future Steps exhibition with an awesome presentation. We will offer prizes for those who post the best photos of them using it in cammo!

Secondly our friends at Studio 427 and Moleskine are launching their 'Better World' symposium with co-founder Cameron Sinclair

Finally we are honored to be a sponsor of the American Pavilion and its show "Spontaneous Interventions", which includes many projects from Design Like You Give A Damn [2] and our local chapters in Chicago and New York. Cameron Sinclair will join a panel discussion on Aug 28th on transforming intervention into long term action.

See you in Venice!

Talks, Shows, Lecture, Workshop
Venue: Serra dei Giardini di Castello (Viale Garibaldi)
From August 27th to November 25th
Talk by Cameron Sinclair: August 27th - 17:30

Couldn't be anywhere else than a greenhouse. Craft and vocation are the principle. The struggle, and the fun part too, it's the networking and the use of smooth materials and ideas producing smart energy. Then lectures, workshops, small design shows turn the venue in a hub to keep our feet touching the ground.
