Studio Roland Snooks is becoming one of the most popular studios for 3D Dreamers, with its work closely followed by many digital enthusiasts. The unconventional shapes, digital form finding techniques and smart use of materials have become a signature trade of the studio. The Meeting Pavilion is no stranger to all of these concepts.
The Meeting Pavilion, created by Ashan Perera, Andres Rivera and Ben Verzijl, with Roland Snooks as a Design Director, is aimed to be “an intimate space for discussion and debate”. For surely it will not be a neutral space, but what that stands out and makes a bold statement. While the exterior shell is designed to be fabricated from “fibre-composite materials”, in order to create a play in translucency both in depth but also discrete, the interior is decided to be entirely lined in quilted fabric, making it an intriguing visual surprise.
The pavilion has won a competition at RMIT and will be completed in 2016.
