In the second of a two-part special, we explore the brilliance of biennales. We imagine what the inaugural Monocle Architectural Biennale could look like with the help of London’s Resolve Collective and Chat architects of Bangkok. Plus: we hear the second half of an interview with Hashim Sarkis, curator of the 2020 Venice Architecture Biennale.

Seth and Akil Scafe-Smith of the interdisciplinary London-based group, Resolve Collective, help us to imagine what could take place at a Monocle Architecture Biennale, with their imagined exhibition, ‘Starting from the End(z)’. The collective’s work combines architecture, engineering, art and design to address social challenges.
