The creation of this pavilion involved building a structure as the centre of the Walk & Talk’s 19 Art Festival to host concerts, performances and talks linked to the programme of the festival.
The structure is a temporary low budget pavilion where recycling (reuse of the Helium Pavilion balloon), the use of locally available materials (cedarwood) and the possibility of being dismantled for reuse in the future were fundamental goals to find a balance between design and available resources. The spatial possibility of the pavilion was summarised in three elements: wooden wagons that house the waterproof programme bar, kitchen, technical room and cellar, a PVC balloon of 6.8 meters in diameter and a fabric that connects both elements.
