Luminous Windscape Pavilion by nARCHITECTS

A subtle pavilion stretched between limestone walls of a medieval castle in a historic French town of Lacoste was a work of art by the New York based office nARCHITECTS. A temporary construction resembling a spider web found its use as a local cultural venue and a gathering place. Main structural elements were white plastic tubes, aluminium reinforcements and 50km of polypropylene thread woven into the walls of the pavilion. Its surface was ever changing, according to the direction of the wind.

The visitors could observe the gentle ripples and even listen to the sounds that the stronger wind made when passing through. Besides providing a place for relaxing and encounters, the pavilion housed many concerts, exhibitions and celebrations. Its beautiful atmospheric lightning in the evening hours, was visible from afar.
