Chicago Architecture Biennial Lakefront Pavilion
Kiosks scattered as mini social hubs throughout the city of Chicago
LATITUDE’s pavilion proposal is a multifunctional space featured with a few key elements: a platform to elevate the pavilion one foot above street level; a cantilever roof to create an expressive space together with aluminum leaves; and a movable wall to adjust the size of the enclosed area. The pavilion has been designed with the intention of being displayed in Millennium Park during the Chicago Architectural Biennial (October 2015-January 2016) as a featured component of its exhibition program. In the spring of 2016, it will be moved to the Michigan lakefront, serves as a kiosk during the summer.
Wind and sunlight work in tandem with the pavilion’s aluminum leaves to create a changing and evocative space under the cantilever roof.
The whole project will be prefabricated and easy to transport to the different locations. The design, flexibility and simplicity of maintenance make this pavilion an ideal project for the city of Chicago.
