Check out the new pavilion created by UNStudio for the 29th Art Biennale in Sao Paulo. The exhibition is split into 6 distinct areas, each reflecting different expressions and moods, and providing visitors with a defined route through the pavilion.

The idea behind the design is to create spaces for exhibition within the building, but also promote interaction between visitors. UNStudio accomplished this by forming the pavilion in a triangular shape, allowing space around the edges for displays and circulation through the use of tiered sloping walls, but in doing so creating a space in the centre where visitors can “peel” off from their browsing and gather in the middle to discuss whats on display.

The form they have created is progressive, and very pleasant to the eye. The plain white render to the surfaces of the pavillion also lends itself to is progressive nature, and also enhances the mood lighting setup within.


I personally feel the architects did a create job thinking out and planning the circulation around the pavillion and feel the  final product completes its brief of being a space which is conducive to thought and discussion, but do you guys think the same? How do you feel about the pavillion? Does it appeal to your tastes, or do you feel the whole idea of creating a “discussion space” at the centre is more of a gimmick?
