MICRO – PAVILIONS
PROCESS AND EXPERIMENTATION
UNIVERSITY OF BRIGHTON: MASTERS OF ARCHITECTURE
16 April – 12 June
In the Rooftop Foyer
This exhibition showcases the designs, ideas and prototypes of first year MA Architecture on the Technology and Fabrication module at the University of Brighton.
Combining design, technology and current techniques of fabrication, the students worked in 4 teams in the creation of a “Micro – Pavilion” for the De La Warr Pavilion.
This proposed “Micro-Pavilion”, offering a secondary space in which to expand the De La Warr programme, had to be temporary and self-supporting whilst addressing the physical constraints of the site and its ever-changing environment.
Team 1: Bryin Lindoe, Evripidis Neokleous, Weijing Zhao, Kefan Yan
Mountain Valley Channel: Employing methods of folding sheet material, Team 1 developed a pavilion based on a spatial and material modularity referenced from the De La Warr Pavilion.
Team 2: KosukeIno, Louise Farries Fisher, Peter Roper, Christina Shimitra
Undulating Projection: Investigating differential expansion of materials, Team 2 developed a proposal of a responsive canopy to house temporal events.
Team 3: Karin Anderson, Oluwatomisin Oladeli-Olanrewaju, Athina Rigopoulou, Xiaoyu Yan
Flat Curve Pavilion: Using a system of strategic cutting into sheet material with those cuts being opened by a variable strut, Team 3 developed a simple yet effective structurally rigid surface.
Team 4: Natalie Cheung, Annabelle Egbunike, Regina Kong
Time Based Aggregation with Membrane Structure: Based on an interest in how the sea salt has a corrosive affect on the De La Warr, Team 4 led an investigation into how to use salt as a key material in the development of their pavilion creating a structure of fabric and salt that would aggregate and change over time and with the seasons.
