Gallery: Atelier Vecteur’s Timber Pavilion for the Festival of Lively A...

 
Set amongst stately buildings, the timber stands in contrast with the stone

Built out of timber sticks of different lengths, the welcoming pavilion by Atelier Vecteur, at first glance, is no more than a simple box. But the design team added what they call an “ovoid” to the cube, creating a swirling sensation inside and a juxtaposition between two seemingly contradictory forms.

A temporary structure, the pavilion is made from natural materials that can be dismantled and re-used elsewhere. The face of it is laid with uniform vertical strips while the remainder of the cube is intersected by the bulb that juts out of the side like a giant peach pip. Although this project won’t leave our readers gasping for air, it is exciting to see young designers experimenting with both form and materials!
