Light Houses

Kjellander Sjöberg was selected together with 32 other architects from Finland, Sweden and Norway to participate in the exhibition Light Houses, On the Common Ground, in the Nordic pavilion at the Architecture Biennale 2012 in Venice. The task was to present a physical model of a conceptual house reflecting the philosophy of each respective office.

Concept

The point of departure for KS’s installation was based on the office’s philosophy; notions of daylight, interstitial spaces and context. A representation of Nordic daylight and interstitial space between the forms of built environment forming a relationship with the space, Sverre Fehn’s pavilion. Here, architecture became an opportunity to expand on and redefine a space.
