Inspired by both the Audi TT sports car and the prefab designs of French designer Jean Prouvé, Grcic wanted to create a structure that could be quickly assembled but also exude an iconic and timeless beauty. The freestanding TT pavilion can be constructed in any factory and assembled to create temporary shelter in any remote location. The pavilion’s adjustable pylons allow the structure to sit on uneven terrain.

“Cars are industrially produced, mobile pieces of architecture,” says Grcic. “They not only offer protection but also are perfectly equipped functional spaces for working, communicating, eating, and relaxing.” Grcic specifically chose the Audi TT sports car because of its geometric design and iconic status. The TT Pavilion is currently on display at Design Miami/Basel from June 17 – 22.

    The kid’s idea is worth the feasibility study at that price tag. I’ve seen great engineers who hit road blocks heed the artist or layperson to get past it. I’ve seen Hail Mary tosses get caught too. Also, I am involved with a technology that can possibly sort what is trapped with great efficiency and make use of the biomass and plastic.
