Comunicato stampa

The Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia is delighted to announce the presentation of «Svizzera 240: House Tour» at the Swiss Pavilion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. The exhibition focuses on the unfurnished interior of contemporary housing by celebrating a peculiar form of architectural representation — the «house tour».

A house tour offers a meandering, eye-level view onto the apartment interior

This view consolidates into a series of images, which register the apartment according to the qualities and affects afforded by its quintessential architectural palette: a ±240 centimetre volume dressed with white walls, skirting board, wood or tile flooring and off-the-shelf components and fittings.

We look forward to welcoming you at the press conference of the Swiss Pavilion on Thursday 24 May at 2pm. If you would like to attend, please register by 13 May 2018 through this form. Should you be unable to attend but would like to receive the media dossier, please let us know. We will be glad to send you the relevant documentation.
