Álvaro Siza Vieira has been chosen to be the recipient of the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement of the 13th International Architecture Exhibition – Common Ground. The decision is made by the Board of la Biennale di Venezia, chaired by Paolo Baratta, under Director David Chipperfield’s proposal, with the following motivation:
Russian Pavilion at the 13th edition of Venice Biennale is awarded with a Special Mention, in the category of national pavilions. Exhibition was curated and designed by Sergei Tchoban and Sergey Kuznetsov, team responsible for exhibition Russia’s Factory – which took place two years ago, also in this pavilion. Awarded pavilion is divided into two parts, 'i-city' and 'i-land' contrasting Russia's past and future, in a highly interactive and subtle way.

Representing central perspectives, including Cultivating, Connecting, Inhabiting, and Migrating, POSSIBLE GREENLAND explores the country’s main challenges and opportunities.
