Spearheaded by Philip Beesley and curated by Sasha Hastings, the sensorial installation Grove at the Venice Architecture Biennale explores constant metamorphosis of our environment.

Grove is a delicate, luminous, lace-like cloud that hovers within the volume of the Arsenale at the Venice Architecture Biennale. The installation is conceptualised as a mixed-media forest-like gathering space that expands on ideas Beesley previously explored in Meander, a large scale-built project located in Cambridge, Canada.
