Archipelago is a pop-up pavilion designed to be easily transformed to meet the changing needs of the urban festival [fjúžn], who’s primary focus is reflecting on migration in Slovakia and the integration of foreigners and new minorities.
The circular construction is creating a subtle definition of space but its radially distributed columns establish an openness in all directions, inviting passers-by to enter and engage with the pavilion. The additional textile and steel elements enable a variety of use and spatial distribution and so this open pavilion at times can accommodate an exhibition, a gig, a panel discussion, a performance, to just name a few.
