The grid goes archeological

Venice, sinking into its own waters and shedding its traditional urban functions, can be construed as a "dying" city. Through "Venice of the North", Svensk Standard performs an archaeology - the recovery and examination of remaining traces and artifacts - to explore possibilities for the animation of both a city and a pavilion, through the active gestures of mapping, exhibition, collection, curation and architectural intervention.
