The architecture magazine 'Arhitekton' organised an architectural competition on behalf of sponsors Kingspan and Zumtobel for the design of an architecture pavilion. The brief for the competition was relatively open. The site could be chosen by the competitor with a general accommodation requirement for a flexible display area and space for temporary seating all within a defined spatial limit of 12m length x 3.6m width x 4.2m height. The use of sponsor materials and products was encouraged and the design was to refelct the ethos of famous pavilions of the past such as the 'Barcelona' pavilion by Mies van der Rohe. The proposed design response to the brief provides a flexible volume within the maximum spatial dimensions allowed. The use of 'neutral' materials / colour palette / lighting and transparent kinetic roof provides both a timeless and changeble solution.
