The Philippines has successfully completed a back-to- back participation in the Venice Biennale as it concludes its inaugural pavilion, Muhon: Traces of an Adolescent City, in the Architecture Biennale on 27 November 2016.

The Philippines’ participation in the 15th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia came at the heels of its comeback in the 2015 Venice Art Biennale after a 51-year hiatus.

“Muhon has started a dialogue that allows us to ponder on the realities that surround us, particularly on our built heritage, and to shape our own personal narrative as a community. As we close this milestone in our country’s history of Philippine contemporary architecture, I wish to express my gratitude to everyone who has made this possible,” said Legarda in her message for the finissage of the Philippine Pavilion.
