At the top. The Arsenale of Venice is a unique, unmissable place that can only be visited on rare occasions. During the days of the Republic, the famous Venetian ships, used for trade with the East, were built in its large basin of water.

The two curators of the Architecture Biennale live and work in Dublin where they co-founded Grafton Architects in 1977. In 2012, they were awarded a Silver Lion at the 13th Venice Architecture Biennale.
