2023 is a great year for Scotland at the prestigious architecture exhibition in Venice, curated by Scottish-Ghanaian architect Lesley Lokko, with Scotland + Venice partnership commission A Fragile Correspondence by the Architecture Fringe, ism magazine and /other at _docks_cantieri cucchini, and Skye-based Dualchas, presenting at the festival exhibition hub, the Arsenale.

Highlighting cultures and languages that have a close affinity with the landscapes of Scotland, A Fragile Correspondence explores alternative perspectives and new approaches to the challenges of the worldwide climate emergency.

Taking inspiration from The Laboratory of the Future organised by La Biennale Architettura and curated by Scottish-Ghanian architect Lesley Lokko, writers, artists and architects, in correspondence with these landscapes, explore issues distinctly rooted in place but with global relevance to the cultural, ecological and climatic issues that we face.

Commissioned by the Scotland + Venice partnership and curated by the Architecture Fringe, -ism, and /other, A Fragile Correspondence will be on public show from 20 May – 26 November 2023 at the _docks_cantieri cucchini, S. Pietro di Castello, 40, 30122 situated between the festival hubs, the Giardini and Arsenale.
