The Pavilion has acted as the entry to the international art event Helsinki Biennial that took place on Vallisaari Island during 2021. It functions as a ticket office, information point and a place for hanging out. The prefabricated wood elements have been designed to be movable. The shape was inspired by the shoreline bedrock.
The Award is given annually as an incentive for a building, interior design or structure that represents high-quality, Finnish wood architecture or where wood has been used in a way that promotes construction technology. The winner of the Wood Award will be announced at the Wood Day (Puupäivä) on the 4th of November.
