Pierluigi Piu’s works will be part of the exhibition BEST ITALIAN INTERIOR DESIGN Selection.
During the first three months of the Architecture Biennale of Venice (22 May-22 August 2021), Platform organises an important initiative that brings together the "Best Design Selection" editorial project and the value system expressed by Casa Platform, a brand synonymous with architectural culture, content creation and networking among the various players in the world of design.
The location of the event will be the Scuola Grande di Santa Maria della Misericordia in Venice. Located in the Cannaregio district, it is an impressive building situated exactly between Ca' d'Oro and San Marcuola, a few steps away from Rialto or from Fondamenta Nuove. Erected in 1538 according to architect Jacopo Sansovino's drawings and completely restored in 2015, today the Misericordia is a monumental space where art, history and culture dialogue with the territory, and is an institutional location for important exhibitions, installations and cultural events.
From 22 May to 22 August this prestigious location will host two simultaneous thematic exhibitions involving a total of 140 architectural firms. The first,"Best Italian Interior Design Selection", offers an overview of interior design by Italian architects - among which is Pierluigi Piu, who presents three projects realized in London - with no geographical limitation or type (residential, hospitality, retail, etc.). The second,"Best International Houses", offers an overview of the world's living spaces through the selection of 70 projects chosen by a scientific committee on the basis of applications from all over the world.
For each exhibition a dedicated volume will be published to collect the selected projects that will enrich the "Best Design Selection" collection that Platform has inaugurated and continues from 2018. There will also be a Casa Platform Venezia General Catalogue entirely dedicated to the event's partner companies and the cultural initiatives scheduled.
In addition to the exhibitions, the PLATFORM ARCHITECTURE FESTIVAL will take place in July; a busy 5 days schedule of speeches and lectures held by the selected architectural firms, in which sponsors and architects can participate as an audience. The event will be filmed and broadcast on Platform's digital channels in order to give maximum visibility to all participants, architects and sponsors. Pierluigi Piu's participation in the mentioned events is supported by KERAKOLL Design House.
