Venice Architecture Biennale

Last, Loneliest, Loveliest is New Zealand’s first exhibition at the Venice Architecture Biennale. It proposes the survival and evolution of Pacific architectural traditions within New Zealand. Designed to evoke the pitched roofs and repetitive patterns of the Pacific, the campaign needed a strong visual presence to attract visitors to the Pavilion. A small yet generous handbook chronicles the progression of Pacific ideas in New Zealand architecture from colonial times through to mid-century modernism and contemporary practice.
