Venice’s famous Punta della Dogana building – guarding the entrance to the Grand Canal – has finally reopened after a dramatic overhaul by Japanese architect Tadao Ando on behalf of luxury goods magnate, François Pinault. Housing the collection of the Pinault Foundation, the landmark triangular building is crammed full of contemporary artworks by the likes of Takashi Murakami, Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons. Mapping the Studio, the art space’s first exhibition, runs until November, 2009.
