Alvar Aalto
location Venice
function pavilion
contributed by lmattozz

In 1955 Maire Gullichsen of the Contemporary Art Association of Helsinki charges Alvar Aalto with the design of a temporary pavilion for Finland, while waiting for a Nordic Countries Pavilion. The concept behind the project, as Aalto once said, is something in between a Sámi tent, the transportable Altar of private Swejk and the Chapel Pazzi. In 1956 the building is ready to be shipped in pieces from Helsinki. The blue and white wooden structure, that was supposed to be temporary, has become over time an icon of the Biennale pavilions.

This site was not accessible, there was a security guard preventing access. Maybe only open during the biennale.
