Another Generosity, curated by Eero Lundén and Juulia Kauste, is the Nordic contribution to the 2018 International Architecture Exhibition in Venice.
The Nordic Pavilion was designed by Norwegian architect Sverre Fehn and has been a collaborative exhibition space between Finland, Norway and Sweden since its completion in 1962. Responding to this year’s theme of Freespace, the exhibition Another Generosity explores the relationship between nature and the built environment, and how architecture can facilitate the creation of a world that supports the symbiotic coexistence of both. It seeks to create a spatial experience which heightens our awareness of our surroundings. Moreover, it is an attempt to foster dialogue, debate and criticism to help reveal new ways we can shape our world with another generosity. A generosity not just between humans, but between humans and nature.
