London School of Architecture CEO and Head of School, Neal Shasore, has been announced as part of the selection committee for the British Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2023.

The news follows the LSA’s involvement with the 2021 Biennale through the Garden of Privatised Delights, British Pavilion, curated by Design Tectonic tutor, Madeleine Kessler and Manijeh Verghese of Unscene Architecture.

The British Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale aims to create debate that both challenges and influences the future of British architecture.

Neal, with the rest of the British Design Council selection committee, will be looking for bold and imaginative proposals, which encourage participation, stimulate discussion and offer a new experience of, and perspective on, contemporary British architecture and how it can respond to global challenges.

In the context of the pressing climate emergency, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the global Covid-19 pandemic, the 2023 British Pavilion will directly address the role of architecture in responding to environmental issues and social justice.
