nordic biennale pavilion in venice, 1958-1962.
architect: sverre fehn, 1924-2009.
sverre fehn's finest hour, no doubt.
fehn talks of the milky white, shadowless nordic light and obtains it here by filtering the much harsher southern light through the two layers of tall, thin concrete beams that make up the roof. his apprenticeship with prouve and utzon was never more obvious and never more gloriously fullfilled than here.
