Linen Pavilion

The PROJECT

Linen Pavilion is a temporary building for travelling exhibitions, the first in a series of Pavilions using rapid volumetric erection, low-budget material and installation costs.

The design uses hanging linen flags to provide a variety of spaces and enclosures, and can be packed away neatly in an overnight suitcase for rapid deployment… a Pavilion-in-a-suitcase.

Fabric flags create diffuse partitions that define spaces, form vistas and spatial sequences, and shape how people move in and around the various pavilions.

The flags are hung on closely-set stainless steel wires and are layered and arrayed into dense volumes; the volumes are then carved to form the interior spaces. What remains behind is spongy fabric enclosure, ergonomically fitted around the interior activity – much like the comfortable furniture on display.
