Souto Moura submitted to the Venice Biennale the project “Vo De Jour” that comprises two aerial photographs positioned side by side, showing the São Lourenço do Barrocal estate in Alentejo, Portugal. This famous architect transformed an imponent old farm into a luxury hotel, but that transformation was so clinical and creative that impressed the judging panel that considered the project and the two images that illustrate it an amazing example of the “essential relationship between architecture, time and place”.

Switzerland won the Golden Lion for the best national participant, with its exhibition “Svizzera 240: House Tour”. This exhibition showcases the bland fittings commonly selected for new-build housing or rented apartments.

As for other national participants, the British Pavilion also received a special mention for the exhibition Island.

As for rising talents, Jan de Vylder, Inge Vinck and Jo Taillieu from Belgium won the Silver Lion for the most promising young participant.
