LIFESCAPES BEYOND BIGNESS          

A large, and full-heigth mesh walks along pavilion’s perimetric surfaces, visually de ning its boundaries. The idea is to represent, through the use of a par ally transparent enclosing system, the idea of “bigness” as expressed in the tle of the 2018 NPUAE. Entering the pavilion, the visitor will mentally rebuild the idea/shape of a large ephemeral volume, rendered through two juxtaposed meshes. Pavilion’s shape is made by the physical layout of two shi ed “C” shaped enclosures. The scheme creates two bu er zones, corresponding to the entrances.
