Pavilions are almost always public spaces, but Corte del Forte Dance Pavilion, a new structure built for the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale, is even more explicitly tied to the idea of public engagement. The open, free-flowing edifice is a part of the Venice municipality, but it's built in Mestre, which is on the Italian mainland. The Corte del Forte Dance Pavilion thus serves as a tendon that ties the island-faring Venetian population to the rest of Italy through the social power of dance.
In terms of design, the Corte del Forte Dance Pavilion is made out of an elaborate series of wooden lattices. This makes the already open space even more visibly open than it would be if it had solid walls.
