    SZ-HK Biennale

    Not much to say at this point, other than that the Shenzhen and Hong Kong Architecture Biennale was well worth the trip. It's nowhere near the scale of say, Venice, but the quality of the work is right up there (indeed, many of the same firms participating, and a lot of overlap in the curatorial team...).

    The most striking aspect of the exhibition, however, is how "open" it is. Making the event free and open to the public was (according to Terrence Riley in a roundtable discussion) a conscious decision, and one that seems to be paying off, as the temporary structures in Kowloon seem to attract both professionals and the general public in equal measure. 

    Many, many more on my Flickr stream.
