TRANSFORMABLE PAVILION / STUTTGART, GERMANY
construction of a term 'pavilion' is characterized as a spatial mechanism in extension, with a wide amplitude of interspatial event. the effective zone, or a functional in-between space of the pavilion, goes from minimal, packed, variant of the 'wall construction' to completely dispersed spatial distribution so that the total space is activated and reassembled according to fictive volumes between the buildings. an asymmetric rhythm of elements transformations offers a huge number of variants that we call 'spatial phases', which is concretely transforming process of the mechanism 'pavilion' in a very wide range of possibilities; from packed 'zip' variant of the wall; through stratified or compact and closed 'box' forms, to finally half-open or totally open 'info-billboard' systems.
the moment of spatial constants which we mark as 'spatial traces' represents the way of structure movements, which with the effect or guides carry even an indication of it's 'work'; moment of frozen memory, resulting immediately from the existent texture of space. the aspect of symbolism is formulated with the multi-stratified 'module', and therefore it contains existing, clear modernistic proportion of plans from which we derive constructive-functional zoning. we can define it's aesthetic as an overtaken, converted and purified, but we also define it as heterotrophic.
pavilion composition, in whatever spatial phase, does not carry constructive ornamentics; purity of forms is seen in relations and gradation of spatial elements from inside, as well as in their logical usability. the moment of spatial conflict, with maximal tension is emphasized by the floating effect of the structure, as a contribution to redefinition of 'space balance'; an indication of a spatial gap which is spanned by functional movement of elements bellow.
