Scotland + Venice, coming to a screen near you

Summer is in full swing in Venice. With three months left of this year’s presentation by Alberta Whittle, and plans forming for next year’s International Architecture Exhibition, we’re feeling truly immersed in The Floating City.

But what if you aren’t able to get out to Venice?
Well, then Venice comes to you!

In partnership with LUX Scotland, we’re thrilled to announce the Scottish screening tour dates and locations for Alberta Whittle’s profoundly moving film Lagareh - The Last Born, a new work commissioned by Scotland + Venice and Forma.

Learn more below, along with the opportunity to pause while going behind the scenes of the work in a short film, and a last call for architecture proposals.

How can good architecture and the built environment be more inclusive?

How can we create places for everyone that are healthy and sustainable, that allow everyone who experiences them to thrive?
