Dream Pavilion, London

Dream is about before, here and after. This dream pavilion is invigorated by the mean of dream. It is a translation of being in an unrealistic environment. Particularly, dream is a moment in which people experience colors, mono tones, happiness, sadness, success and failure in different circumstances. Dream is about a very important juncture that disappears. Sometimes it comes back and sometimes it doesn’t

“Before, here and after” has simply conceptualized this design that describes the vision of sustainability in this proposal. Before, the pavilion parts were natural elements, which were recycled. Currently, they form this pavilion and in future after dis-assembly; they will be used in museum of childhood and kindergartens for kids to build new things.

The unique relations of surrounding buildings and other site potentials with the pavilion, has been reflected in a cross shaped visual corridor that cuts through the experimental space. The new pavilion looks special from every different angle. From a far distance on pedestrian sidewalk, it looks like a colorful box. Meanwhile, getting closer to the pavilion, its shape transforms to a free standing platform with two focal points on it.

The main material in this pavilion is salvaged wood that makes rods in a place where imaginations are lifted, elevating people’s dreams. Consequently, it captures dreams at the idyllic meeting point of Garden Museum, where people from all parts of London can gather and encounter an experience unlike any other. We are proposing a simple, spherical, lightweight structure. Indeed, the Concodia Chair, by George Nakashima, has been considered in the visual corridor. George Nakashima was pioneer and famous for his smart designs using salvaged woods.

This pavilion is an urban public space that provides opportunities of connection, socialization, relaxation and enjoyment in a high quality of the outdoor space.
