Otherworldly Balloon Installation Responds to Changing Environments

One of the more unconventional exhibitions at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2018 is the Nordic Pavilion’s “Another Generosity.” Helmed by curators Eero Lundén and Juulia Kauste, the show sees humongous, alien-like balloons that inflate or deflate according to the surrounding environment’s carbon dioxide levels and change color when there’s a change in temperature or humidity. “Essentially what we’re doing here is we have structures that live according to the changes in their environment, like me and you do,” Lundén told Dezeen. “So they breathe.”
