The Floating Pavilion was built on an existing barge with dimensions of 10m x 20m x 3m in the form of a cargo of 32 tons of welded wire mesh, with more than 40 layers spaced so that they form a solid volume with approximate dimensions of 19m x 9m x 5,5m. A carved out space was shaped inside the volume by varying contours that form the main space as well as protrusions and openings toward the outside. Almost invisible form a distance, the structure revealed itself with different densities of steel mesh, transparencies, and vision lines, forming stunning visual effects and experience of space by very simple means. The Croatian pavilion was towed by a tugboat from the shipyard in Kraljevica to the port of Rijeka, presented to the public on August 21st 2010, and on to Venice where it was to be moored at the main pier during the opening of the Biennale.
