For the 10 years of the Festival of Lively Architecture and in an as exceptional place as the hotel Saint Côme’s courtyard, the biad for the main Pavilion must be thoughtful and contextual . It seemed important to use the differents elements that punctuate the courtyard as a basis for the overall development of the pavilion’s shape. Begining from the ground, the pavilion unfolds in a multitude of random steps that can serve as reading spaces for visitors, rest or stages for the various events that take place during the Festival. The pavilion includes columns that surround it to form a large reception area for the public. Because of its shape and generosity, that interiority intrigue, consisting of a wall set design, this space becomes a place of informations and meetings around the Festival.

The structure is made of wood, like the entire pavilon. The aim was to create a contrast between inside and outside. Inside the atmosphere is very bright and welcoming in order to provide an information point for visitors. The outer materiality is obliged to be related to the courtyard. The pavilion is in opposition between the context, privileging dark tones and sharp angles. The outer envelopel is made from medium tinted in the mass, in order to create a dark and powerful material to support the majesty of the place.

The projects claims to be oriented towards socials expectations, urbanism and functionality while feeding the ambition of becoming a key actor of its locality. This idea is translated by the creation of an interactive ecosystem where the building becomes an urban articulation intersecting scales of cities.
