Since 2018, Archinfo Finland has been in charge of the architecture exhibitions organised at the Pavilion of Finland during the Biennale Architettura.

The International Architecture Exhibition has been organised in Venice since 1980. It alternates with the International Art Exhibition, which was established in 1895. The architecture exhibition has developed into the most esteemed international arena for showcasing architecture, with 275,000 visitors in 2018.

The 17th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia will be open to the public from 23 May to 29 November 2020. The Curator is architect and scholar Hashim Sarkis. For more information, please visit the Biennale website.

An Open Call for exhibition proposals for the Pavilion of Finland was launched on 12 June 2019. Please visit the Open Call webpage.

In 2018, Archinfo Finland was appointed by the Ministry of Education and Culture of Finland to act as the commissioning body for the first time. The resulting exhibition Mind-Building was a study of over 100 years of Finnish library architecture leading up to the opening of the new Helsinki Central Library Oodi. The Mind-Building catalogue is available online here.
