Sumit Singhal loves modern architecture. He comes from a family of builders who have built more than 20 projects in the last ten years near Delhi in India. He has recently started writing about the architectural projects that catch his imagination.
Art Pavilion in Salzburg, Austria by SOMA
May 17th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal
The pavilion intends to make the curious enter the pavilion. Art is a complex cultural process of many participants in a discourse. Art reveals itself not “at first sight” or casual listening, but only arises in the discussion. These properties reflect the mobile art pavilion. By means of stratification of the outcrossing rods to a 3-dimensional structure is produced by simple means a complex structure that changes constantly, depending on the viewer’s point of view and lighting conditions.
The structure of the pavilion is not directly detectable, but its different manifestations and effects are discovered only in the spatial experience, walking around, entering and using the viewer. The pavilion has no clear form, but a shimmering presence that focuses on our visual perception as an active and creative spatial process.
As air cover and water-bearing layer is a membrane clamped between the sheets which conducts during the day, the shadow maps of the rods in the interior and scattered at night the interior lighting situation and filtered through the bars on the outside. The modular platform base design allows for an individual and flexible use of interior space.
The structure of the art pavilion was optimized by means of parametric models and genetic algorithms. With a variety of potential solutions, which are by mechanisms such as selection, recombination and mutation rebuilt over many generations, created a target congruence of structural and architectural design, an emergent, taking account of the architectural edge parameters optimal solution structural behavior.
