The pavilion was conceived as a compact element seeking to preserve the link between the park and the river, minimizing the impact on the environment and without interrupting the horizon line at the pedestrian level. Respecting the horizontality ofthe landscape and its panoramic views.The pavilion, as a typology, lacks a specific program giving rise to a multiplicity of uses, being indifferent to a pre-established function. In this sense,the architectural theme was approached from the premise of giving shelter to a free and flexible space; a container of possibilities. Space that frankly articulates with the square where it is inserted, reinforcing its public character. Clearly linking with the existing pavilions: integrating them and generating a route in which the proposed pavilion is the main protagonist. Faced with the temporary requirement, it was decided to develop a scaffolding structure, being a completely recyclable system. It has a list of repeatable modules allowing quick assembly on site; its dry assembly and the lightness of the elements used contribute feasibility to the execution of the proposal. Following the same criteria, the enclosure consists of “silo-bag” canvases arranged as fabrics that are woven into the structure.
