Czech Trek at the Biennale

Out of all of the exhibits at the Venice Biennale this year, I spent the most time sitting and playing inside the pavilion of the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Along with being interactive, dynamic, and quite beautiful, it was a celebration of a well-known Dwell obsession: the countless possibilities of the wooden slat.

Walking from the direction of the French and Japanese pavilions, visitors were greeted by an explosion of wooden 1x4s lining the trees of the entry pathway. (Formerly the pavilion of Czechoslovakia, the building was designed by Otakar Novotn back in 1926.)
