Wanderer’s Lodge is a small pavilion gently placed amongst existing trees in the garden of an extraordinary property in the north of Spain. In its daily use, it overlaps functions of protection, storage, entertaining, dining, barbecues, napping, acting as a small theater, etc. The particular climatic conditions to do with rain and humidity have suggested a lightweight materiality capable of reflecting the closeness of the trees and the existing main house, making itself present through the contrast of a polished and symmetrical piece against its natural backdrop. Designed for a young family of wanderers who travel the world, the pavilion celebrates the dialectic presence of fire and water as means to anchor experience to time and place. Construction elements are prefabricated and assembled on site by two local craftsmen.

The Underwood Pavilion was featured by The Star Press as Indiana’s new art destination. The traveling pavilion celebrates the qualities and potentials of Indiana’s post-industrial landscape through attracting people to places that are currently not considered public space. The pavilion is the outcome of the Digital Design Build Studio, directed by Gernot Riether and Andrew Wit, both professors at Ball State University. At the time it is located close to Muncie, a 70,000 inhabitants city in central Indiana.

Article source: Jesus Torres Garcia Architectes Located in the South of Spain, close to the Mediterranean Sea, this small pavilion is surrounded by a remarkable landscape. The construction is defined by the relation between the form in the landscape and the contact of the structure on the field. The structure developed itself as a flower, as a natural fact, subscribing to Oscar Niemeyer’s approach. The whole project has been composed in the concept of “how to build in natural landscape?” and “what is the appropriate “weight” of a construction of this scale?” The non-program pavilion reaches the idea of disappearing in the landscape, attempting to erase the division between the intervention and the area. This concern of integration reaches the point where the landscape generates the architecture itself.

The iWeb is a single space building that was originally designed as the pavilion for the province of Noord Holland for the Floriade 2002, the international exhibition of flowers and gardening, held every 10 years in The Netherlands. The iWeb was later redeveloped as laboratory for the Hyperbody Research Group (HRG), Delft University of Technology, faculty of Architecture (TU Delft). The building lost its function after a coffee machine destroyed the faculty of Architecture building in May 2008. In September 2014 ONL [Oosterhuis_Lénárd] (ONL) donated the iWeb building to the public domain by uploading the design and construction datasets to GitHub.

Every year, citizens of Catalonia commemorate the events of September 11th 1714, a key date in the War of the Spanish Succession that has come to symbolize what Voltaire called “the Barcelonans’ extreme love of freedom.” With this year marking the 300th anniversary of these events, Barcelona Cultura enlisted the Fundació Enric Miralles to curate 7 public installations around the city as part of its Tricentenari BCN program.

The Solar Rain Tree Oasis is being developed as a public gathering place pavilion for the drought stricken state of California. The ideal location for these large pre-fabricated steel structures is in a public park, but they can also be placed into any public accessible location. All of the structures are designed to support ten large solar cell arrays that collect energy from the sun and convert it into electricity, which is sent into the local power grid. In addition, each of the structures is formed into a circular shape that is capable of collecting rainwater and directing it into storage containers that are buried under the structures.

The ‘Raw Australian Shed’ by Kennedy Associates Architects has been shortlisted in the 2014 World Architecture Festival Awards for the AGL Lakeside Pavilion at the Australian Botanic Garden in Sydney. Drawing together two highly symbolic concepts: the semi permanent theatrical marquee and the more permanent vernacular shed, it’s a generous building that inspires and lifts you.
