Construction of the new space is set to be complete by 2015.
Designed by Denton Corker Marshall architectual firm, financing of the $6 million structure is to be entirely privately funded.
The new Australian pavillion will showcase art, architecture, film and photography exhibitions at the Venice Biennale.
The Australian pavillion has been in a ‘temporary’ building since 1988.
