White Noise Mobile art Pavilion in Kosice, Slovakia
Art is a cultural process involving many participants within a discourse. This process does not reveal itself at first sight, but unfolds through encounter and engagement. The pavilion’s appearance emphasises this idea. It provokes curiosity and invites visitors to encounter the unknown and unusual.
The architectural concept is based on a theme that is inherent to architecture as well as music – rule and variation. The design process of the pavilion is based on a simple repetitive element, a set of rules for aggregation, and the definition of the architectural effects aimed at. The single aluminium profiles with a uniform length produce an irregular mass-like conglomerate that changes its appearance during the day, according to the different light conditions. The structure allows an ambivalent reading as single members and as a merging whole, depending on the distance it is viewed from. The speculative intention behind this “obliteration” of the pavilion’s structure is to prevent any conventional notion or cliché of “construction”. Instead the pavilion should invite visitors to come up with their own associations and interpretations.
