Together with students from the Münster School of Architecture, Münster-based architectural practice modulorbeat have recently realised this eye-catching, luminous pavilion. Completed in only six weeks, the 95-square-meters temporary structure hosted a series of workshops which coincided with a local exhibition showcasing medieval art of the Westphalia region.

More about the project:

 

‘In order to compensate for the slope of the Domplatz, the pavilion was built on top of simple piles made of in-situ concrete and wood, which would leave no traces once they were dismantled. The building has a cross-shaped layout with four “wings”. Each wing open inwards like a funnel, so that the layout is more reminiscent of an abstract windmill than a crucifix. The effect is an inviting gesture to visitors, as the inside path opens up onto the central workshop area.

 

‘The precise construction achieves a lot with little, while allowing for a merry playfulness: the simple forms and materials gain incredible complexity through subtle and precise displacements, elevating the project to a most entertaining building. Despite its symmetrical layout, it never looks like a cross but instead seems to reinvent itself at every new perspective.’
