Architect Robin Juzon has created a “waffle” structured reception pavilion made of wood for the Festival des Architectures Vives (FAV) in Montpellier, France.

“The pavilion of simple geometric shape, was achieved with the aid of wooden panels.” says FAV. “With the massive and opaque origin, the panels are similar to thin sheets of wood embedded into each other. Thus, the pavilion proved sometimes transparent and sometimes opaque depending on the angle preferred by the visitor.”

The pavilion is both the reception and the starting point for the 8th edition of the festival, as well as being a meeting place and forum for all FAV visitors. The pavilion is strategically located in the heart of the city in the courtyard of the CCIT Montpellier (the Chamber of commerce and industry), Hotel Saint Come.
