Biennale Venice offer at San Clemente Palace Kempinski until November 2018
“Freespace” is the title of the 2018 architecture biennale in Venice, curated by Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara of Grafton Architects and taking place until 25 November 2018. Art lovers and architecture enthusiasts who are keen to visit this incredible biannual event and at the same time would love to stay in style will find a heavenly place right in the Venetian lagoon, on the private island of San Clemente Palace Kempinski Venice. Just a ten-minute boat ride from Piazza San Marco, the five-star deluxe hotel offers a Biennale Package not to be missed.
With the theme of “Freespace”, the Biennale Architettura 2018 presents for public scrutiny examples, proposals and elements – built or unbuilt – of work that exemplifies essential qualities of architecture, which include the modulation, richness and materiality of surface; and the orchestration and sequencing of movement, revealing the embodied power and beauty of architecture. The exhibition has a spatial, physical presence of scale and quality, which will impact on the visitor, communicating architecture’s complex spatial nature.
After a long day in the “Giardini” and the “Arsenale”, guests may fully relax when getting back to the lush gardens on the private island of San Clemente and indulge in the gastronomical variety the five-star hotel has to offer. The Biennale Package at San Clemente Palace Kempinski is available with a minimum stay of three nights, and includes a sumptuous breakfast buffet and two entrance tickets to the International Biennale Exhibition valid for one access to each of the Biennale venues, as well as a three-course dinner at the La Dolce restaurant, which is located in the centuries-old park next to the outdoor swimming pool and serves fresh and seasonal cuisine, with a choice of some traditional Venetian dishes.
