The installation is one of four fragments of a wooden pavilion,
from which the others are placed at the Arts Campus. The motive for
placing different parts of the pavilion in various urban sites is
to trigger curiosity and to build bridges between the Architecture
School and its surrounding community.
The fragment of the pavilion that has been installed at
Rådhustorget is temporary, flexible and multi-purposed. It might be
used as a stage for performance or as a space to hang out or sit
down for a while. Ideally, it might work as a platform for
gathering, a common space for social interactions, a framing of the
particular context and not least - as a shelter for bodies.
The projectwas a cooperation between Umeå Municipality and Umeå
School of Architecture.
