The 16th International Architecture Biennale.
The title for the 2018 Architecture Biennale is Freespace.
Curators: Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara.

In 2008 they won the World Building of the Year Award for the design of the new building at the Università Bocconi in Milan and were finalists of the Sterling Prize for the University of Limerick Medical School and Student Accommodation. They received the Jane Drew Award in 2015. In 2016, their project UTEC University in Lima, Peru won the inaugural RIBA International Award.

Their title for the 2018 Architecture Biennale is Freespace.
Architecture with a sense of humanity at its core. Architecture which challenges ways of thinking, new ways of seeing the world, of inventing solutions. Architecture which provides for the well-being and dignity of each citizen on this fragile planet. Architecture as a way of engaging with people over time, the architect's intended and unintended legacies.
