The Academy for Architectural Culture will be hosting two exhibitions and workshops at this year's architecture biennial in Venice. Occhio will be there as a cooperating partner and is handling the lighting design at the centrally located Palazzo Rossini: with the lui spotlight series in the rail variation that marries stunning design and lighting technology in a puristic, technical form. Equipped with innovative zoom technology, lui is the perfect lighting tool for exhibitions.
The Academy for Architectural Culture is a private, nonprofit organization based in Hamburg that was launched in 2008 by the architects at von Gerkan, Marg und Partner (gmp). The academy's instruction draws from its founders' and sponsors' many years of experience. The exhibition offers a glimpse into the culture fostered at aac, following in the tradition of the many presentations and publications the academy has employed to proactively contribute its findings to encourage public discourse and promote societal dialogue. In addition to the exhibitions, a portion of the aac's upcoming summer workshop will also take place during the architecture biennial. The lectures are open to event visitors.
