Designing the shape of STIK PAVILION

Now that the construction of the Stik Pavilion is finished, we have been working on documenting some of the processes. As such, it could be interesting to revisit the formal design process that the lab was exploring. The following video shows how the shape of the pavilion was generated using the Harmonograph; a mechanical apparatus with two pendulums which generates a geometric shape.

Shifting Shifts

In the past two weeks everyone had shifts for guarding the pavilion while providing information for passers by. We had a little intervention =]

Ready to be whisked away to Elisyum...

The Pavilion has been demolished this morning by Shimizu and remains will be taken away by tomorrow. Holding chopsticks will never feel the same again.
