Project description:

With two “primitive huts” that the visitor can enjoy from within, the installation provides two examples of space and shelter at their purest. One part of the installation was constructed by a Finnish master carpenter and his team, and the other by a Chinese team.

Re-Creation is a two-part installation based on a concept by Anssi Lassila. With two “primitive huts” that the visitor can enjoy from within, the installation provides two examples of space and shelter at their purest. One part of the installation was constructed by a Finnish master carpenter and his team, and the other by a Chinese team. Together the two installations strike up a subtle and complex dialogue between the architects and local builders. Presented in the pavilion designed by Alvar Aalto in 1956, Re-Creation takes a stand on our relationship with the modern legacy and its tradition of international dialogue.

Re-Creation embraces an appreciation for tradition as a source of identity, combining it with an openness and curiosity toward international influences. Finnish modernism has always essentially been about digesting these two into something new, not copied or borrowed, but inspired both by the local tradition and by an exposure to the world beyond one’s immediate sphere of experience.
