Eero Lundén: Another Generosity

Another Generosity explores the relationship between nature and the built environment, investigating ways in which new approaches to architecture can help shape a world that supports the symbiotic coexistence of both. A ‘generosity’, Lundén argues, is not just between humans but between humans and nature.

Utilising a structure comprising two basic elements—water and air—the structures currently on display in the Nordic Pavilion in Venice combine to create a visible and dynamic cellular structure. Inflated elements mediate between the natural and built environment, responding to external and sometimes unseen stimuli. Together they create a momentary hesitation that heightens awareness of what surrounds us.

Lundén Architecture Company was founded in 2008. The office engages with contemporary spatial challenges and focuses on proposing new ideas that envision the future of the built environment. The practice’s design approach is research-based, experimental and collaborative, involving leading experts and consultants from diverse professional fields.

ArkDes in Venice

ArkDes represents Sweden at the International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, which occurs every two years in Venice, Italy. Alongside The Museum of Finnish Architecture (Helsinki) and The National Museum of Norway (Oslo), ArkDes is co-commissioner of the Nordic Countries Pavilion, designed by architect Sverre Fehn. On other occasions, ArkDes participates at the Biennale in other capacities through exhibitions, events, and support for artists and architects.
