jmarchitects have been taking part in a collaboration between Denmark and Scotland at this year’s Venice Biennale.

The event, titled The Happenstance includes discussions and presentations focused on the theme of ‘Possible Spaces – Sustainable Development through Collaborative Innovations’. Although each project has very different responses to the Biennale theme of Freespace both look at teaching material and collaboration.

A panel including jmarchitects Design Director Ian Alexander will be discussing why it’s important to change the way we collaborate to build and make solutions for a sustainable future, and why it’s important to reach the future generation as well as adult and professionals. This will be followed by presentations from architects from each country who will present what is current in learning environments and touch on the current thinking and approach to designing for young people, teaching staff and communities.
