Asplund Pavilion Vatican Chapels Biennale Architettura 2018

Curated by Francesco Dal Co and Micol Forti, the Holy See Pavilion for the Venice Biennale is inspired by the Chapel in the Wood, built in 1920 by Gunnar Asplund in the Stockholm Cemetery. The Holy See Pavilion is formed by ten chapels and Asplund Pavilion conceived as a prelude to the exhibition displays Asplund's architectural drawings. All these elements are grouped together in the garden of the Cini Foundation on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore.
