Wood is both universal and unique. No other material is as deeply embedded in the history, culture and life of humans worldwide as wood, yet every single piece of wood is unique. The color tone, texture, durability, flexibility and even sound qualities of different tree species have puzzled and challenged artists, architects, designers, builders and artisans for thousands of years. Still today, nothing matches wood in versatility or beauty, so it is great to see how today’s designers and architects continue to face the challenge of wood, and use it creatively to interpret sleek, modern designs. They use wood to meet their current needs and desires for which wood is ideally suited. People seek calm surroundings, simplicity and minimalism to soothe their frayed nerves and to counter the constant visual overload they face.
Certainly one of the most eye-catching out of the over 50 national pavilions at this year's Venice Architecture Biennale is the one representing Russia. Dubbed "easily the most popular pavilion in the Giardini" by World Architects, Russia's pavilion shocks its visitors as every surface inside of it is covered in QR codes. Visitors are encouraged to enter the innovation city called Skolkovo and use iPads to decode the concept for the actual Skolkovo, which is Russia's futuristic city-in-planning (their equivalent of a Silicon Valley) which will be located near Moscow. Grigory Revzin, commissioner of the pavilion, stated: “Skolkovo is a high-tech project, it’s all about innovation, about new level of living, about how science and modern technologies come into human’s life. That is why our exposition is exceptional one this year. We have created a space that is physical and virtual at the same time.”
