Baltic Pavilion, Venice 2016

(image grabbed from the Estonian call out 2018)

We were fortunate to meet some of the curators of the Baltic Pavilion in Venice in November, 2016 on a trip with UCA Canterbury School of Architecture Year 2 students: Clinton Olajide, Jacob Williams +1 (sorry!) with Studio Tutor Rhys Jones. A real pleasure to be able to chance upon them in the Palasport, Arsenale. Karlis Berzins + several other curators had just arrived and took some time out to speak briefly with us. An awe inspiring collection of infrastructure, ideas, history, maps, diagrams and artefacts to be viewed while the girl's basketball team prepared for practice in the arena, a working sports hall.

Much better descriptions can be found in this range of links:

Karlis kindly introduced us by way of emails to several other curators, Jonas Zukauskas, Niklavs Paegle, Ona Lozuraityte to initially give a talk at our Multistorey lecture series in Canterbury. We have thickly pencilled in- with a 2b pencil for Jonas to speak on the 12th Oct, 2017 with MArch student Daniel Stilwell curating these talks. Further details to follow....
