"Art Vessel"

Librarium Winner: Top At-Large Project
Fall 2016

The longevity of buildings implies permanence, and completed buildings are often understood and experienced as immutable realities. The goal of this project is to instead present the transience of buildings by proposing a floating pavilion to host installations for the Venice Biennale. The pavilion moves from the apparently solid and permanent to the unstable and temporary. It is entered on floating trays of broken material, and is constructed with an external frame of paper tubes and a translucent paper skin.
