After an open competition instigated by Culture Ireland and the Arts Council of Ireland, we were selected to commission, curate and design the Irish pavilion for the Venice biennale (2014) directed by Rem Koolhaas. Our proposal engaged with the role of infrastructure and architecture in the cultural development of the new Irish state 1914-2014. This curatorial programme was realised in a demountable, open matrix pavilion measuring 12 x 5 x 6 metres housed in the Artiglierie section of the Arsenale in Venice. The project budget was 350,000 Euros.
