A light unit able to be moved easily, that can be disassembled and reassembled in many shapes, being able to mark the different sites, through its setting and reconfiguration in relation with artist’s requirements and people’s addictions.
steel structural blocks covered and coated by ETFE curtains guarantee exposure in a coastal area, fireproofing, thermal insulation, soundproofing and bioclimatic performances.the dimensions of the unit allow to transport the pavilion between sites and the chance of storing artworks inside a rental moving truck. this essential unit may shape multiple type compositions and configurations such as a labyrinth, a tower, a courtyard, an open space, a gallery and many others.
