Geneva-based architects Leopold Banchini designed a new pavilion, re-using the materials of the 2019 Feathers stage designed by the Portugese fala atelier. The multidisciplinary firm wants to take on the opportunity to focus on circular principles of temporary architecture and the re-use of the available materials as a base for architectural expression.
Starting from an exercise in taxonomy, an intimate hut for ritual conversations is designed from these components. In addition a public pizza and bread oven will be built, to stimulate the informal use of this pavilion as a meeting place. The oven will be constructed with earth materials, in coordination with BC Architects.
The Lab will be framed with visits to Brussels-based architecture practice BC Architects and to the construction site of the WTC Towers, Belgium's biggest circular architecture project led by the 51N4E.
Through co-creating and building a pavilion with circular materials, you learn how architecture can become more sustainable, you meet likeminded people and you develop your personal self.
