From far the pavilion sits in the park. Moving closer the unexpected impact on the ground becomes visible and increasingly dominant. The visitor is guided towards and along the structure which starts to hover above and allows for entering the interior space below the ground level.
The focus is guided upwards to the open ceiling while framing the sky. The London cloud carpet becomes a protective layer. As a consequence the pavilion design results in a reinterpretation of a grey sky as a calming environment.The main circulation curve is a continuous move through the site and pavilion, while optional pathways provide alternative experiences. The relationship between user and object is constantly shifting, from entertained, in control, being surveilled or threatened.
The circulation from exterior to interior is articulated on the ground defined by separate seams that align and break up to a rich pattern in the interior to join ground and object to one shell. Spatially the pavilion allows for flexible events due to a combination of linear guidelines and functional pockets allowing for lounging sitting, drinking and eating.
