Villa Frankenstein by Vicky Richardson

British pavilion for the 12th biennial of architecture in Venezia, Italy has been commissioned to Vicky Richardson, director of the department for architecture, design and mode at British Council – a leading cultural and educational organisation. The pavilion was opened on the 29th of august 2010 and was ironically named Villa Frankenstein referring to a Victorian social critic and historian of venetian architecture John Ruskin.

The entire space represents a stage for exchange of opinions between Great Britain and Venetia. The centerpiece of the pavilion is a copy of Olympic stadium that will be build in London in 2012. This hybrid structure can serve as a platform for drawing, discussions or scientific research. After the biennial the pavilion will be re-constructed at another place in Venetia as a cultural heritage.
