Abstract

he Lapua pavilion –fugitive, ungraspable and temporary potential dwelling- emerges as a playful manifesto of Aalto’s experimentalism. This pavilion-organism establishes a double dialogue: from Nature to Architecture and from Architecture to Nature by scaling a sort of elastic mould. The situation is that the place houses the building as the building moulds the place. In order to discover this Semperian trail in the artwork of the Aaltian pavilions, certainly we might explore the notion of elemental wooden shed. By accident, the graphic documentation and rendering of Lapua pavilion reveal a tight link to the wood-framing used in a traditional Finn-Lappish 'Kota'. The result of both design strategies is the camouflage, where indoor and outdoor spaces are deleted and appear a landscape without constraints. The Lapua pavilion defines an intimate topographic relationship with the woodscape and its primary forms, looking to forge a metaphor of the thermal home in a remote world, using primal architectural tools: Row matter, elemental framing and the flows of nature and nomadic cultures as output of a veil in motion. This membrane constitutes the poetic and technical dwelling of the Aaltian pavilion. Here, we may conclude that the matter -wood as substance- moulds the form -the pavilion as organism- which dissolves in its own shape.
