China Pictorial (English) - - NEWS -

Suzhou, Jiangsu Prov­ince: Vis­i­tors take a boat down the river along the Pingjiang Lu in Gusu Dis­trict.

Themed “Freespace,” the 2018 Venice Ar­chi­tec­ture Bi­en­nale, also known as the 16th In­ter­na­tional Ar­chi­tec­ture Ex­hi­bi­tion, will be held from May 26 un­til Novem­ber 25, 2018. This year, 71 stu­dios from 65 coun­tries will show their work in Venice.

Suzhou was in­vited as the 2018 Across Chinese Cities guest city by the Bi­en­nale. To present the long his­tory, rich cul­ture and new de­vel­op­ment of Gusu Dis­trict in Suzhou, a se­ries ti­tled “On the Streets of Pingjiang Lu” will be pre­sented as a spe­cial dis­play at the Bi­en­nale. By cap­tur­ing the streetscape, ar­chi­tec­ture and cul­ture of the his­tor­i­cal street as well as re­cent plan­ning and op­por­tu­ni­ties for trans­for­ma­tion, it aims to ra­di­ate the new value of Gusu Dis­trict and Suzhou City as well as the di­rec­tion of re­gional in­no­va­tion on de­vel­op­ment.

The Venice Ar­chi­tec­ture Bi­en­nale is one of the most in­flu­en­tial plat­forms in fields of ar­chi­tec­ture and ur­ban de­vel­op­ment in the world, and China is among its par­tic­i­pat­ing coun­tries.
