The Chilean Pavilion is yet another design that's been presented at the Venice Biennale recently. This one focuses on the political history of the country through various forms of housing.

The entire room is lit with a red glow, which almost adds an eery and mystical sensation to the pavilion. On one wall there are numerous small housing replicas hanging from the side, and jutting outwards. Projected photos from Chile have been placed on a different wall, with a large concrete structure in the center of the room. This concrete section has a square hole in the middle so that people can view the projected photos as if looking through a picture frame, which is an interesting added touch to the pavilion.
