The Venice Archirtecture Biennale opened to the public on 28 May and runs until 27 November 2016. To give you an insight into Home Economics, our exhbition at the British Pavilion by curators Jack Self, Shumi Bose and Finn Williams, we've captured our Twitter Tour and also give you access to the audio tour, read by Will Self.

Yesterday we hosted a Twitter Tour of Home Economics, taking you around each of the rooms and introducing the ideas and propositions for the five new models for the design of the home.

View the full Twitter Tour on Storify.
