"The Migrating Landscapes Organizer (MLO) is pleased to announce an open ideas competition for young Canadian architects and designers. This competition will be the main process for creating Canada’s official entry to the 2012 Venice Biennale in Architecture, entitled MIGRATING LANDSCAPES.
Themed around migration and cultural identity, MIGRATING LANDSCAPES examines how we as Canadians express our diverse cultural memories and the settling/unsettling dynamic of migration in contemporary settlements and/or dwellings. The competition invites young Canadian architects and designers to reflect on their migration experiences and cultural memories, and to designdwellings onto a new landscape, an exhibition infrastructure designed by MLO.
The intention of this competition is to bring the Venice Biennale to Canada, by promoting and exposing the up-and-coming generation of Canadian architects and designers to the Canadian public before showcasing them in Venice. The goal is to build a young, architectural “Team Canada” to represent Canada in Venice"
