The most important annual architectural event, The Venetian Biennale; the 12th International Architecture Exhibition opened on August 28th. As we featured here, under the guidance of this year’s commissioner Leo Modrčin, Croatia was set to present itself with a floating pavilion which was presented to the Rijeka public just a few days prior to its maiden voyage toward Venice. If you weren’t in Rijeka, scroll down to view the photographs of the Pavilion’s final form. The authors of the project, Saša Begović, Marko Dabrović, Igor Franić, Tanja Grozdanić, Petar Mišković, Silvije Novak, Veljko Oluić, Helena Paver Njirić, Lea Pelivan, Toma Plejić, Goran Rako, Saša Randić, Idis Turato, Pero Vuković and Tonči Žarnić, are among Croatia’s most eminent architects, having managed to establish Croatian architecture as a relevant force on both the domestic and international architectural scene.
