So yesterday was the last day of the media/VIP preview (or vernissage) for the Biennale. We had some technical difficulties and couldn’t post, so we’re doing it today!
The day started with a photo session and a roundtable discussion with a journalist and several of the architects represented in the Pavilion. Then tons of media and other folks toured the Pavilion.
It was a great day until about five o’clock, when a mighty storm rolled in. Despite a few showers, the Pavilion remained open and busy!
Afterwards, a closing celebration was held at the Guggenheim Museum.
It was a great day–a great week, actually– and we’re sad to leave Venice. But our work here is done, the U.S. Pavilion is open to rave reviews, and we must get back and tend to things on the other side of the pond.
We leave you with some photos from the final day of the preview and show you the completed Pavilion! Thanks to everyone who made it possible, especially Atlanta-based artist Danielle Roney who designed the exhibition!
