Be Palettø: A Pavilion Of Pallets Provide Pupils With a Place to Relax

Be Palettø!  is an experiment in architecture for public spaces created by a group of eleven students at the Aarhus School of Architecture  in Denmark. The students used a limited palette of materials — well, only shipping pallets  actually — and stacked them into a curvy strip to create a temporary pavilion. The newly-created space offers a fresh environment for students to mingle.
Be Palettø consists of 420 repurposed pallets  stacked to form a serpentine wall around a courtyard. Pallets strategically jut out from the center of the wall to create steps along the parameter and act as a nice place to sit. The exercise succeeds in creating a sculptural structure, outdoor furniture , shade from the summer sun and a unique space for conversation or relaxing.
Although the wall was only up for a week, it brought new life into the very traditional Danish timberfame buildings and courtyard — the curvature contrasts smartly with the timber’s grid. Check out this fun video  of the making of the installation.
