Architect Junya Ishigami Selected to Exhibit at 11th International Architecture Exhibition at the Venice Biennale 2008

Award winning young architect, Junya Ishigami, has been selected to exhibit at the Japan Pavilion at the 11th International Architecture Exhibition at the 2008 Venice Biennale. The project, Extreme Nature Small Pavilions, will see him design a group of small pavilions inside and outside the permanent Japanese Pavilion examining the question What is architecture?. The pavilions proposed are a new type of greenhouse and with the help of botanist Hideaki Ohba, Ishigami will produce environments that are just subtly different from their surroundings, suited to plant life that is potentially disruptive to the local habitat of Venice.
