The pavilion, a dual purpose as an information/meeting point (hub) and Festival venue, was designed by a second year architectural student at the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture, Lucy Fisher who continues to be involved as the pavilion develops from design to construction. This event has been organised in partnership with the Look Again Visual Art and Design Festival, the Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen City Council, and the Balmoral Group.
The pop-up temporary mirrored pavilion to be placed in the Castlegate will launch the Festival of Architecture 2016 in the Aberdeen Chapter and will be the focal point for the festival. The pavilion has been designed to attract attention, become a talking point, and reflect it’s historic context. The aim of it’s designer being to encourage members of the public to ‘look again’ at the city’s architecture.
Covell Matthews were involved in preparing the construction information for the project.
