August 27th in Venice, Italy, the [UN]RESTRICTED ACCESS finalist designs were unveiled to the world in physical form (read: presentation boards). "The Bunker" exhibition transformed a hallway of the Palazzo Bembo into an immersive environment for "Future Steps."
More amazingly, representatives (and their partners) from six of the finalist teams were able to make it out for this Biennale VIP Preparty. We'll save details of the event for later (following a certain Design Open Mic presentation), but check out some images from the event below.
Tremendous thanks to everyone who helped build and document The Bunker–we hope to do it again soon in a city near you, as we begin to tour the competition.
The Bunker will be operational at the Palazzo Bembo through November 25.
