Sky Light Pavilion by Nimbu

The conception of an architecture pavilion that is universal, timeless and spaceless shouldn’t be connected with the idea of conceiving a meaningless construction. Instead, an architecture pavilion that intent to be contemporary should be a construction that pursuit the architecture itself. Finnish architect Juhani Pallasmaa says that the renewal of an art, whatever it may be, means rediscovering its deepest essence, and that architecture is a direct expression of the existence, of the human presence in the world.

Internal Perspective

Man’s contact with the architecture is crucial to its completion in artistic dimension, because only from the act of introspection of consciousness submitted to architecture it can exist beyond purely physical dimension. Look and admire the phenomenon of architecture is to see the internal language of construction.

Dependent on human consciousness and the act of introspection to be fully realized, the architectural work is never understood equally by all people, because it is directly related to intimate and personal interpretations. The consciousness of man is struck by images, and in the case of the architecture pavilion, these images are composed by associated geometric shapes.

External Perspective

Initially the geometry of the pavilion was basically composed of two boxes, one opaque exterior and one transparent contained in the first. They were then decomposed into simpler and archetypal forms – walls, doorways, floor, door, window and gables – which allow a greater number of interpretations.

These architectural elements make clear the distinction between interior and exterior, and yet do not alienate them. From inside the outer opaque box another inner place within the transparent box can be seen, and inside this one, a bench offers itself to the contemplation of the sky.

External Perspective

Heidegger formulated that the life-world is a fourfold composed of earth, sky, mortals and divinities. The sky is inhabited by divinities and the earth is the domain of things and mortals. The character of this pavilion is then defined through the contact between these elements that conforms a place where man’s consciousness arises and the architecture is performed.
