Paper Pavilion in San Stae

borhnouse exhibition, 2008

The project of the Pavilion was designed by Project Meganom in cooperation with the architect and curator Yuri Avvakumov for his BornHouse exhibition. The exposition was part of the XI International Architecture Exhibition at the Venice Biennale and was held in the church of San Stae. It is a paper house with a gable roof and double walls, within which the exhibited objects are located. Both the external and internal walls, made of corrugated cardboard, are carved with the same pattern. The Pavilion was built around the tomb of Doge Mocenigo. After the exhibition in Venice, the Pavilion was moved to Lille.
