The US Pavilion at the Venice Biennale is a Palladian-style building, designed in 1930 by renowned architects, William Adams Delano and Chester Holmes Aldrich.

The US Pavilion enjoys a prominent position in the Castello Gardens, which house many of the national pavilions of the Venice Biennale. In 1986, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, New York, purchased the US Pavilion from the Museum of Modern Art, New York, with funds provided by the Peggy Guggenheim Collection Advisory Board. Since 1986, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection has worked with the United States Information Agency (USIA), the Fund for Artists at International Festivals and Exhibitions, and currently with the Bureau for Education and Cultural Affairs of the US Department of State in the organization of the visual arts and architecture exhibitions at the US Pavilion. Prior to 2002 the architecture exhibitions were organized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation.
