The 1x1 Pavilion is a temporary wooden installation built to facilitate a diverse program of architecture-related events connected to the Faculty of Architecture STU in Bratislava. The winning competition proposal designed by student Michal Rachela was realized last month in collaboration with architect Katarina Bohacova and artist Bohus Kubinsky. The entire structure was built from pallets organized as four upside-down pyramids.
The project 1×1, which will be housed at the pavilion, was initiated in winter 2010 as a pilot program launched by the Faculty of Architecture STU in Bratislava. The concept was to create a platform for discussion and debate within the discipline; a series of events will include lectures by leading European architects, discussions on current topics in architecture, and workshops and internships in renowned architectural offices.
The pavilion will aid the effort to commercialize activities of the Faculty of Architecture by becoming a space for collaborative practicing of architecture, a great hangout place for students and a cultural venue. The structure was inaugurated at the music festival on 24 September, 2013.
