“Low cost” is the keyword for the Italian Pavilion at the 15th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, curated by TAMassociati. The pavilion is made of x-lam panels which were used to construct the Irish Pavilion at Expo Milan 2015. The wooden panels were disassembled, shaped, re-assembled and mounted on Innocenti tubes to create the installation’s main walls:
the Tunnel in the first room and the five Alias in the second room. In the Giardino delle Vergini [garden of the virgins], architects Luigi Greco and Mattia Paco Rizzi used the same elements for the fit-out of the visitor rest area. Milan Ingegneria contributed to the project by providing the structural design, and as a sponsor.
