Fatima and Anders go to the 2014 Venice Biennale!

Current and former placeworks co-op students Fatima Rehman and Anders Peacock along with team member Caitlin Biggar are arriving shortly in Venice in part to represent Canada at the Biennale!
Having won a national architecture student’s competition for their conceptual project based on the edge of Frobisher Bay close to Iqualuit, they were given support to pursue the design further on-site in the high-Arctic community as well as attend the Canadian Pavilion in Venice where their work will go on display June 7th. Lateral Office from Toronto provided the team with curatorial support readying their representations.
An article in Canadian Architect outlines the overall Canadian effort for this important exposition. http://www.canadianarchitect.com/news/northern-exposure/1003000850/
If you are in Italy, go see this work and meet our amazing colleagues!
