The Happenstance brings together artists and architects to work with young people nationwide to discover what Freespace means to them and their communities

For the Architecture Fringe a section of the core structure designed by Baxendale for the space in Venice will be presented and activated with a night of film screenings that showcase the work of The Happenstance team in Scotland and in Venice.


To engage with the Biennale Architettura 2018, Venice, and to celebrate Scotland’s Year of Young People (YOYP), The Happenstance, is an exploration of how young people in Scotland respond to the Biennale theme of Freespace. Using play as an active agent within the process of rethinking and reclaiming Freespace within the built environment, in Venice this was presented as a Living Library of Ideas, focussing on the event nature of live situations – exploring how we can intervene in our own lives and the circumstances that shape us.

The Happenstance is created by: WAVEparticle and Architecture & Design Scotland, Brian Hartley, Ruby Pester & Nadia Rossi, Tassy Thompson, Emily Speed, Francis Thorburn, Daniele Sambo, Hannah Brackston, architects Fergus Purdie (Fergus Purdie Architetcs), Lee Ivett & Ambrose Gillick (Baxendale), Graham Ross (Austin-Smith:Lord), Paul Stallan and Keri Monaghan (Stallan-Brand), designers Alberto Lago and Neil McGuire, and film-maker Basharat Khan
