Micro - Pavilions Process and Experimentation

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.
