The Nordic Pavilion at the Biennale in Venice was created in 1962 by Norwegian architect Sverre Fehn (1924–2009). It consists of a single hall of 400 sqm, open on two sides. Huge trees grow through the roof, wich is made of overlapping layers of conrete beams. It is a wonderful place, and during the Art Biennale 2013 work by Finnish artist Terike Haapoja will highlight the interplay beteween art and nature.
Don´t miss it when in Venice!
