As part of a small team I was involved in designing and building the main pavilion for the ‘Zigzag City’ architecture festival in Rotterdam.
With the theme of ‘The Festive City’ the pavilion forms a ‘public interior’ in the Wijkpark, a place where people can meet and exchange their stories. The pavilion was to be the starting and centre point for your discovery through the neighbourhood .
The festival pavilion consists of two parts: the House and the Tower. The skyline of Rotterdam, as seen from the park, is the inspiration, with the towers that rise behind the gabled roofs of houses. The tower marks the festival location, whilst the house represents the interior, a homely place where visitors and neighbours can linger in the Wijkpark.
