For the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, Alpi has built one of the chapels of the Pavilion of the Holy See

Pavilion of the Holy See – 16th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale

Island of San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice

26 May – 25 November

24-25 May

 

The Asplund Pavilion, a prelude to the exhibition itinerary, has been designed by the architects Francesco Magnani and Traudy Pelzel.

 

 

For this important project, Alpi has developed an experimental material starting with the woods of the Xilo 2.0 collection, used to cover all the surfaces of the architecture. The exteriors of the building are entirely made with 9000 shingles featuring the Xilo 2.0 Planked Gray wood pattern, to respond to the specific needs of the architects.

The catalogue of the Vatican Chapels Pavilion of the Holy See – edited by Francesco Dal Co, with texts by Gianfranco Ravasi, Francesco Dal Co and Elisabetta Molteni – is published by Electaarchitettura.

Coordinated image and graphic design of the catalogue by Tassinari/Vetta.
