About the Project:
The pavilion as a bench. Some functions stated in the brief, like concert hall, lecture hall, reading and chill out areas ask for sloping surfaces to sit and walk. The sedentary landscape is comprised of a truss system placed at 30 degree angles, turning wall and roof panels into an ideal location for staircases and surfaces for sitting.
The pavilion as a meeting point. The competition brief stated that the pavilion should stay in the back seat and not taking any attention away from away from the design itself. On the other hand it should be a unique articulation and interpretation of design’s atmosphere. Prechteck uses the heartline as a metaphorical image describing its historical, political and artistic alteration over time. Keeping the pavilion to the sidelines of the site in between Kassel and the plot, the pavilion extends horizontally and so relates to the surrounding cityscape. Stretching in the horizontal plane creates an atmosphere of togetherness with open access for all.
