Next Year's Venice Architecture Biennale Will Focus on City Planning

The 10th Venice Architecture Biennale will be staged from September to November 2006 with the theme of transformation of cities and regions. The exhibition will be under the artistic direction of Richard Burdett, professor of architecture and city planning at the London School of Economics.

Titled “The Meta-city: Issues in City Planning,” the exhibition will focus on innovative proposals and directions needed in response to changing populations and working habits.

Burdett, born in London in 1956, founded the Cities Program at LSE and has over 20 years of experience in staging exhibitions and competitions. He advises London’s mayor, Ken Livingstone, on architecture and urban issues, and is director of Urban Age, a two-year sequence of conferences on urban development. The Italian Pavilion will for the first time be sited in the Arsenale exhibition complex.
