Photo shoot at the Finnish Pavilion by Alvar Aalto. In comparison with the rather imposing structures around, the Finnish Pavilion at the Biennale Gardens in Venice, designed by Alvar Aalto in 1955-56, looks like a joyful gazebo erected momentarily for a garden party or wedding. The air of celebration is emphasized by the stabilizing white triangular supports, which seem to turn the dark blue wooden walls into the nonstructural textile surfaces of a festival tent.
