The pavilion forms a temporary intervention in public space. In this context it offers a space to be explored and experienced freely.

It reverts to research on spatial signals – the idea that the shape of a space informs us what experience to expect in that particular space, by referring to universal, previous experiences. The pavilion is based on two spatial shapes, and therefore two experiences: the sheltered and the exposed. The sheltered can be found on the inside, where soft, slanting walls meet above the visitors’ head (as if an attic or a primitive structure). The exposed can be found in the enclosed core, which does not have a roof and where the walls are slanted in the other direction, away from the visitor (as if a stadium or a valley).

The pavilion is ideally placed in an open field in between high-rise – the ultimate exposed, in contrast with the ultimate shelter within the pavilion. This temporary intervention inverts and strengthens the given experience in a specific public space.
