While the Venice Biennale draws huge flows of participants chiefly because it covers most of the fields of the artistic and cultural spectrum, the Venice Biennale of Architecture (which is part of the Venice Biennale) is appealing in particular to the professionals in filed of architecture. Architecture-related displays have been part of La Biennale di Venezia since the late 1970s, but they became a distinct section in 1980. Held every two years, the architecture exhibitions are organized in even years, whereas the other events occasioned by La Biennale are held in odd years.

The Public Gardens of Venice are the ones which host the Venice Biennale of Architecture, though sundry other venues in Venice are also home to various exhibitions and adjoining events occasioned by Mostra di Architettura di Venezia. The popularity of this happening increases by the year, alluring reputed architects and designers to come and display their latest projects and ideas with the great award, the Golden Lion.
