This year’s Croatian Pavilion for the Biennale of Venice was designed by a group of 14 leading Croatian architects, amongst them our friends of 3LHD Architects. The floating construction was built up on an existing barge in the harbour of Reijka and was afterwards shipped through the Adriatic Sea to Venice. The structure is welded from 30 tons of Q385 wire mesh in more than 40 layers, they form – due to varying contours – the interior spaces. The Pavilion with the Croatian exhibition is open at the Croatian venue at the Arsenale.
