The relationship between nature and built environment will be explored in the 2018 Nordic Pavilion
Lundén Architecture Company has been chosen to design the exhibition of the Venice Biennale Nordic Pavilion. Eero Lundén’s proposal, entitled Another Generosity, explores the relationship between nature and the built environment. The goal is to examine new ways of making buildings that emphasise the delicate but often invisible interactions between the built and natural worlds.The Nordic Pavilion, designed by Sverre Fehn in 1962, celebrates nature’s different phenomena: light, sound, materials bringing them together to form a unique architectural experience. The 2018 installation in the Nordic Pavilion will build on the context created by Fehn and ask how we see ourselves in relation to nature today. The project aims to create an immersive experience for visitors and a place for meetings and dialogues throughout the Biennale.Eero Lundén was born in Turku, Finland in 1982. He founded Helsinki-based Lundén Architecture Company in 2008. Focusing on the development and innovation of the built environment, architecture and urbanism, the practice engages with contemporary spatial challenges and aims to develop new ideas that envision the future of the built environment.
