Dream Pavilion
Inspired by this statement by Marco Polo in Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, the Dream Pavilion is designed by making the negative of a pretended city: the buildings become empty space, the streets and the sky become volumes. These volumes, linked together, create a waving canopy and define the space of the pavilion. The exterior surfaces of the pavilion reflect the surrounding environment, the interior ones are painted of four different kind of green: the pavilion mixes up with the nature by camouflaging. Since the boxes which the canopy is made of are bottomless, the light passes through them creating a striking effect and defining an inspirational space where people could linger in a contemplative atmosphere.
