London-based firm IPT Architects recently unveiled this year’s Summer Triumph Pavilion for the V & A Museum of Childhood’s Museum Gardens. Titled the ‘Dream Pavilion,’ this self-supporting structure stands 13 feet tall and it’s constructed from oriented strand board, timber, and untreated mild steel. Depending on the viewer’s vantage point, the pavilion’s angular cutouts shift from solidity to transparency–a change in perception that metaphorically captures the fine line between a dream and reality. The architects hope that the shifting geometries and spatial forms will also provoke discussions about architectural aspirations and creativity.
