Each playful modular element is formed from

As the event draws to a close, attendees
are invited to take the beautifully crafted
modules home with them, leaving just a
simple shell of a pavilion in their wake.
The true meaning of reusable design is
implemented as the modules are put to new
use in homes across the city.
The primary structure is constructed entirely from
a hireable standard European stage rig such as
Eurotruss’ HD System or similar.
This enables all
of the structure to be expediently assembled and
disassembled after the event. Ensuring a minimum
carbon footprint, the structure can then be returned.
These trusses are boxed-out using 10mm recyclable
honeycomb cardboard which is attached to the
truss-system with zip-ties. Following the event, the
cardboard can be donated for re-use or recycled.
The cardboard is dressed with sustainably-sourced
felt which we will precisely tailor to form fluted
edges. Cuts and penetrations are kept to a minimum
to ensure maximum possibility for re-use.
We propose that natural felt will be specified to
ensure maximum sustainability and recyclability of the
