Open call for Proposals to Curate the National Pavilion UAE 2025

For the 19th International Architecture Exhibition,  we are seeking applications and concept proposals to represent the UAE at the Venice Biennale in 2025. The Exhibition will be open to the public from May – November, 2025.

Architects, designers, artists, historians, and researchers who have worked or studied within the UAE or the MENASA region are invited to submit proposals that reflect the Architecture Biennale’s reputation as a platform for the dissemination and exchange of ideas.

The mission of the National Pavilion UAE is to unearth and reflect on the untold stories of the UAE, to contextualize those stories within regional and international discourse, and to identify contemporary developments in architectural practice.
