Nordic Pavilion, Venice Architecture Biennale 2016
In Therapy: Nordic Countries Face to Face exhibition at the Nordic Pavilion, Venice Architecture Biennale 2016
We were very excited to see a selection of five of our images presented at the Nordic Pavilion. As the temperatures begin to rise in Italy the design and architecture world turn their eyes and critical analysis to the Venice Biennale 2016. The official press opening at the Nordic pavilion attracted significant attention and the crowds gathered to hear the curator David Basulto, co-founder, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of ArchDaily introduce the exciting concept of ‘acknowledging the presence of the ghosts of Nordic architecture’.
The step pyramid, built using traditional construction techniques from Swedish Pine, provides a visually stimulating and engaging environment. As the pavilion flooded with curious visitors, the dynamic interaction with the space was fascinating to witness. Adults climbed up the slated pyramid into the rafters of celebrated architect Sverre Fehn’s sublime Nordic pavilion. Children enthusiastically run up and down the steps collecting images for their little bags given away at the show. These steps then provided an auditorium for the critical debate of Nordic architecture.
