The 2010 Venice Biennale, which ran in the second half of the year, gathered ideas from artists from around the world in the form of paintings, sculpture and architecture. In the architecture category, we were intrigued by the design, the ideas, the installations. We found video clips of the Biennale’s main building and of some of the most exciting architectural installations in the year’s show themed People Meet in Architecture.
Ca’ Giustinian – a walk through the Main Offices of the Venice Biennale
Croatia’s Floating Pavilion: 15 Croatian architects participated in the design and construction of this pavilion built atop a boat.
Cloudscapes: Germany’s transsolar engineers and Japan’s tetsuo kondo architects collaborated for this installation of metal ramps and mist-producing machines, creating an ethereal walk through a cloudlike environment.
Your Split Second House: Danish artist Olafur Eliasson used streams of water falling erratically from the ceiling and strobe lights in a darkened room to create an intriguing space that challenges one’s perception of space.
Canadian “Hylozoic Ground” Pavilion: a multi-disciplinary team from Canada and Britain has created an environment that seemingly breathes, moves and grows, by combining the concepts of early life on earth with chemical and electrical engineering.
