The Philippine Pavilion in the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale has opened its doors to the public following its vernissage last May 27 at Palazzo Mora, featuring the exhibit Muhon: Traces of an Adolescent City, curated by the team of Leandro Y. Locsin, Jr., Sudarshan Khadka, Jr. and Juan Paolo dela Cruz of Leandro V. Locsin Partners (LVLP).

It is one of the top 30 must-see events and exhibitions of the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale as mentioned in the Wallpaper*, a Time Inc. publication on design and architecture, fashion, travel, art and lifestyle.

Senator Loren Legarda, the visionary behind the Philippines’ participation in the Venice Biennale, led the vernissage together with Locsin, representing the curators and participating artists and architects; Philippine Ambassador to Italy Honorable Domingo Nolasco, representing the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA); and Adelina Suemith, representing the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA). The Department of Tourism (DOT) also supported this project.
