The name Balancing Pavilion is suggesting a volatile and open structural proposal, continuously appearing in motion as it can transform into endless variations and configurations to satisfy the needs of the city. As a lighting installation, the pavilion is a meeting point for gatherings and public events. Made out of steel and timber, Russia's well know local sources of building material, the lightweight structure can easily withstand several years of usage.
The ‘’brick’’ of pavilion is made out of three self-supported components with three different densities. The boundary of the component is truncated tetrahedron, a simple geometry which can be multiplied and stacked to both symmetrical and random position. Further, they can be easily attached to each other to form any position on in space and they can be dismounted and reconfigured or transferred to another location. Finally, with the limited budget as constrain, the component is designed to be fabricated bellow 500,00 Euros meaning there can be an estimate of minimum 40 components forming the pavilion. Every individual component has only few different pieces which are different from one another. There are in total 6 arms differentiating in height to create denser or less denser structure. They are assembled in 4 sides/modules of single component, making them extremely economical in mass production process.
The lights fitted inside of each component can be powered by local grid, or a generator installed on site. Also, there are three standard sizes of lighting tubes for each of the component density. The pavilion can be erected as a group of many smaller structures, cluster of 2 or 3 smaller compositions or as a one large structure as presented in rendered images. The components can serve as furniture pieces, light nodes in the field, festival gates, small kiosk, etc.
