The Rainforest Pavilion is an extension of Gun Architects‘ ongoing body of work that focuses on the Chilean climate. Many of their projects create forms out of the circulation and accumulation of water, which is the driving force behind their work. The pavilion is accompanied by an exhibit in the main Architectural Association (AA) Gallery that describes its development, evolution and technical engineering. The exhibit includes photographs by Cristobal Palma and Helene Binet.

The installation is a major part of the AA’s outreach event, Projects Review 2014, which will take place from June 28th to July 19th. It is also a part of the 2014 London Festival of Architecture, which takes place during the month of June.
