Venice Biennale and Google release the 15th International Architecture Exhibition as online catalog

Venice Architecture Biennale 2016 and Google have collaborated to make the 15th International Architecture Exhibition “Reporting From The Front”, curated by Alejandro Aravena, fully available on Google Arts and Culture, along with a selection of National Participations and Collateral Events.

Following last year’s project, which brought Biennale Arte 2015 online, La Biennale di Venezia and Google Arts and Culture are now launching a new initiative to broaden the ways in which people from around the world can visit Biennale Architettura 2016. Not only is the project meant to help those who wish to start discovering the Exhibition before their trip to Venice; it also makes it available long after the official closing day of November 27th, 2016.

If you missed and still didn't visit the Biennale, the visitors will be able to discover a virtual tour through Google's Arts and Culture section- contains a comprehensive digital archive featuring over 3700 images, videos, interviews, the entire International Exhibition, 3 Special Projects and the exhibitions of 43 National Participations and 11 Collateral Events. 

The visual database records the installations found in the several collections and digital exhibits, and the many filmed interviews of the participants.  These numbers are bound to increase as other Countries and Events join the project.
