SKY PAVILION | Bethnal Green
This is our entry for the ArchTriumph competition to design a pavilion within the grounds of the V&A Museum of Childhood Gardens in Bethnal Green. The theme of this years pavilion was ‘SKY’.
Our entry proposed a simplistic cylindrical frame which is wrapped with layers of rope to create an interactive and kinetic piece of architecture. Much like the sky, the pavilion is constantly changing and the ropes are moveable, be that by wind or by the visitor who can determine key entrances or views out from the pavilion. This allows the pavilion to be firmly rooted to its context and surroundings.
The centre of the pavilion is aimed to provide a secluded escape from the busy city life with a landscaped mound which the visitor can lie down to gaze upon the sky.
