Creative trio Traumnovelle constructs a place for political discussion in Belgium for the Venice Architecture Biennale. In the shape of a circular blue amphitheater, the pavilion provides ample space and fosters direct contact between individuals. The simplicity of the color palette does not distract from the intended function of Traumnovelle's structure. The circular and symmetric layout of the pavilion ensure unity and balance that is strongly observed in the aesthetic and the atmosphere of the space.

The place for political discussion invites individuals to talk about "the various issues facing the European Union" — from Brexit to the rising nationalism. The blue amphitheater is curated by the architectural trio and Roxane Le Grelle with the hopes a creating a "Eurotopie" — a new Europe.
