People wearing the huge sculptural head of a unicorn has become one of the most surreal images to be seen at this year’s  15th Venice Architectural Biennale.

Part of the Prospect North exhibition at the Scottish Pavilion, which is jointly produced by Lateral North, Dualchas Architects and Soluis, a design-visualization studio from Glasgow, the heads of the unicorn, moose and polar bear allows you to enter an immersive virtual reality world of the Highlands past, present and future.
