The Belgian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale event on architecture examines domestic space, and how important this is to design. Many times people don't think too much about the different areas of domesticity, so a team of artists went into multiple homes in Belgium to photograph and document this changing landscape.

The way everything is presented at the Belgian Pavilion is done in a whitewashed manner, with the designs looking quite stark with a clean aesthetic. According to DesignBoom, "the exhibition features interpretations of this image catalog and analysis, presenting noteworthy themes through spatial interventions, scale models, and surface treatments."

Domestic space is just as much a part of architecture as the walls that hold up a building, so it's great that the Belgian Pavilion took time to examine this idea.
