Stuff is happening in real life again. Get excited. Irish architecture collective Annex (Sven Anderson, Alan Butler, David Capener, Clare Lyster, Fiona McDermott, Donal Lally) are curating our representation at the Architecture biennale in Venice this month.

Entanglement is an exploration of a producing a space from a range of material related to data infrastructure which also embodies our history as a strategic node in global communications and data infrastructures, dating back to 1866 when the first subsea transatlantic telegraph landed on Valentia Island as well as Marconi’s transmission of the first wireless radio messages.

“We’re creating a physical space and spatial experience from the material objects that usually only mediate digital worlds.” 

From May 22
