The exhibition “The 2nd Annual Magazine Award” will be held from 17-19 May in the Museum of King Peter I in Belgrade.
Creative usage of different panels should result in a project that realistically reflects the idea of contemporary architecture – what it is and what it should be, and also affirming architecture itself.
The Architecture Pavilion should represent a “universal, timeless and spaceless building”. Good example of similar project is Mies van der Rohe’s pavilion for the Exhibition in Barcelona.
Location is envisaged as a flat and open public space, accessible from all sides with the free surrounding space for viewing the object.
The pavilion should function as an exposition pavilion in the framework of which a small space for sitting arrangements should be defined. Approximate dimensions of the Pavilion should be 3.6 x 12m and the height of the pavilion should not exceed 4.2m.
Sandwich panels form a building coat in a simple and effective way and as such are ideal material for objects where form and function are essential. Materialization of the pavilion should accentuate fundamental architecture elements – form and function of the Architecture pavilion, and it should be inspired by Kingspan company panels.
Kingspan company is the leading European manufacturer of sandwich panels and also the sponsor of the contest. The participants of the contest should obtain information on the characteristics of these panels from the Kingspan web site www.kingspanpanels.com, and strive to design assemblage solutions as real as possible and also feasible for eventual construction. Detail processing of the bracing between the panels is not necessary except in cases where idea and quality of the solutions depend on such details.
Special attention should be paid to the lighting of the pavilion. It is necessary to provide the interior and exterior building lighting solutions. The visualization should show specific lighting elements and their positions inside and outside the pavilion. By diverse usage of interior and exterior light project should generate high-quality ambience in compliance with its purpose.
