This project emerged following a workshop held by Rhino3DPortugal where it was intended to create a temporary structure of low cost, that would shelter the event of the brand New Now Wow.

 

In order to respond to these premisses, the idea was to create an element, easy and quick to assemble, that took up little space in the transport, was movable and could be completely closed.

 

In view of these ideas, it was chosen to use an ancient Japanese art, the Origami, where we tried to answer each of these points through the metamorphosis of the form.

 

Trying to interfere as little as possible in St. Paul's Square, it was important that would be remarkable, an ephemeral and changeable structure, to adapt to the daytime and night-life of this space. The creation of the whole pavilion starts from a simple modular system that allows the space to grow in harmonic, not only in length but also in height and width. This same module is used for the creation of all furniture, such as benches and counter.
