For this year´s Reykjavik Design Days and 2009 Reykjavik Art Festival the New York based architects of Shift presented the temporary installation, the DIY Reykjavik Pavilion. The 45 m2-structure consists of individual alluminium triangles, which were calculated and processed through 3D software and offer high flexibility.

The architects words:

“The project is about testing the possibilities that ultimately arise with the collapse Iceland has seen. The modern ideological system which governed Iceland in every way has failed and Iceland is now about actualizing opportunities, not admiring false visions. How do designers navigate within this new reality? Are we going to look backwards and let the future happen or are we going to find a way to nevigate forward using what we have at hand? DIY Reykjavik Pavilion is about political controversy, new economy, new technology and community to ask questions about Iceland´s future.”
