LOOK UP AT THE SKY. THE SKY AND CLOUDS ARE SEEN AS A PATCH WORK OF SMALL SQUARES THROUGH THE ASSEMBLED WOOD CONSTRUCT ION. THE EYES GET DIZZY AS THEY MOVE ACROSS OF THE UNDULATING SHAPES. WOOD CONSTRUCTION AND SKY MERGE. IT ALMOST FEELS LIKE A TRANCE TO LIE ON THE GRASS UNDER THE ‘DREAM CATCHER‘ AND LET THE IMPRESSIONS FROM THE MASSIVE, YET TRANSLUCENT, PAVILION SEEP INTO THE BODY. THE EFFECT IS ACHIEVED WHEN THE EYE IS DECEIVED BY THE ASSEMBLY – DISTANCES BETWEEN THE WOOD CONSTRUCTION AND SKY MAKE THE FOCAL POINT OBSCURED.

 

THE LIGHTER CONSTRUCTION METHOD ENABLES THE FREE SHAPING OF THE PAVILION TO CREATE A LARGE UNDULATING MOUNTAIN LANDSCAPE WITH THOUSANDS OF SMALL TREE TRUNKS. THE MOUNTAIN CREATES CAVERNS AND UNIQUE SPATIAL EXPERIENCES THAT CAN BE EXPLORED .

 

WHEN ONE PASSES THROUGH THE PAVILION’S PERFORATED STRUCTURE THEY EXPERIENCE MANY SMALL LIGHT HOLES AGAINST THE SKY AND LIGHT SPOTS ON THE GRASS. THE PAVILION IS DESIGNED FOR THE RENAISSANCE PARK KONGENS HAVE - AN URBAN ESCAPE IN DOWN TOWN COPENHAGEN. THE PAVILION’S BOUNDARY Y IS DEFINED FROM AN OFFSET OF THE CITY’S BORDER S AROUND THE PARK. THEREFORE , THE PAVILION IS NOT PARALLEL TO THE REST OF THE PARK’S GRID , BUT RELATE S TO THE CITY AS A CULTURAL ELEMENT.

 

THE CONSTRUCTION CONSISTS OF 48X48MM BATTENS 1 METER LONG AND SMALLER 20CM LONG PIECES ARRANGED IN A GRID THAT ALTERNATES BETWEEN BATTEN AND LIGHT HOLE. THE BATTENS ARE FULLY USED: 3 X 100CM + 4 X 15CM=360 CM. THE JOINTS MAY BE PERFORMED IN VARIOUS WAYS - WITH SCREWS, DOWELS, GLUE, OR A COMBINATION.
