Titled ‘Amplifying Nature’, Poland’s pavilion is brought to you by the CENTRALA architecture collective. The team have created a ‘floating imaginarium’ at the heart of the exhibition which examines the ‘planetary notion’ of architecture as well as works of Polish modernism from the second half of the 20th century. Curated by Anna Ptak and produced by the Zachęta – National Gallery of Art – the exhibition will look at how architecture effects human contact with nature day-to-day, comparing architecture to planetary processes such as gravity, water circulation, the day-night cycle. The pavilion design is by artist Iza Tarasewicz who has creatively interpreted these ideas into physical, artistic form.
