This temporary outdoor exhibition gallery space intends to integrate a responsive architecture with artwork. The proposal creates a dialogue between art and architecture. A minimal design approach allows for full expression of the artwork.


The pavilion is built out of wood pieces that are easily connected and disconnected to create a weaving structure that adapts to different event conditions and types of art. This assemblage re-adapts to create three different conditions. The artist exposed, the artist contained, and the artist framed enable a play between urban environment and art watching stations.
