Let me just start off by telling you what is the most interesting thing about this building: the Anthropometric Pavilion designed by Arphenotype is a portable building which is anticipated to be 99% recyclable. Not bad.

Inspired by Corbusier’s Modulor and Listing + Möbius’ Möbius strip, the temporary pavilion takes on characteristic of both: acting a bridge between ideas as the Modular strove to as well as existing formally as a sort of feedback loop. The Möbius thread provides the building with a layout of two central amorphous regions, within which programming is inserted. One region holds a stage, auditorium, bar and small kitchen, while the other exists as a ‘modifiable area’ which can become an open stage or be divided to host dual functions. Both regions are independently accessible, providing a true multi-purpose quality to the pavillion.

The form is created through CNC bent aluminum tube, between which spans double-curve tensioned membranes. This symbiosis of support and tension creates a rigid horizontal structure. This system is very similar to large tent construction and like tents, is assemblage without mechanical means.
