In 2002, for the first time, the Irish presentation was located within the Italian Pavilion situated in Venice’s Public Gardens, the Giardini Publici. There the Dublin-based architects Bucholz and McEvoy presented their design for Limerick County Hall currently under construction at Dooradoyle, Co. Limerick and due for completion in Summer 2003. Ireland was one of 36 participating nations.

The Irish Pavilion as presented at the Venice Biennale 8th International Exhibition of Architecture in Autumn 2002 is now on display in the OPW.

There was another "Irish" office with work on display at the Venice Biennale. VMX Architects, Amsterdam headed by Don Murphy from Cork was one of the 5 nominated Dutch entries. The Dutch selection was made up of the 5 finalists for the NAI Prize (Netherlands Architecture Institute) for young Dutch architecture . Their bicycle shed at Central Station, Amsterdam was exhibited.
