Somerset House, London, 7 – 27 September 2016
The first London Design Biennale will open this September at Somerset House with over 30 countries and territories participating, including Chile, Cuba, Mexico, Portugal and Spain. Taking over the entirety of Somerset House, the Biennale explores big questions and ideas about sustainability, migration, pollution, energy, cities, and social equality. Engaging and interactive installations, innovations, artworks and proposed design solutions – all in an immersive, inspiring and entertaining tour of the world.
The Spanish Pavilion’s VRPolis Diving into the Future aims to show viewers, via virtual reality goggles, the future of the city of Santander in 2100, focusing especially on its port, bay area, Plaza Porticada and the calle Marcelino Sanz de Sautuola.
