location Venice
function pavilion, shop
contributed by lmattozz

In 1989, James Stirling was asked to design a permanent pavilion to be used as the official bookshop of the Venice Biennale. The shop was inaugurated in 1991 for the V Biennale of Architecture. The building is only on one floor, and is 30 m long and 6 m wide. The building is made mainly out of metal and it was partially assembled in situ. The books are displayed along a 40 m wooden bookshelf that runs along the interior perimeter of the structure. One end of the pavilion, where the entrance is located, is a straight cut, the other end is a curve facing the Finnish Pavilion. Inside the building, there is glass all around, giving to the visitor the impression of being completely surrounded by nature.
