Location: Moscow, Russia
Architects: SA lab
The task was to design a temporary summer cinema pavilion, based on a mission of Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, and to offer unique experience to visitors.
The proposal should take into account 5 principles:
> to be a new landmark
> to be a functional and useful space
> to be sustainable
> to be human friendly
> to be temporary
The pavilion will function only four months.
To design an adaptive space which will be showing the idea of temporary architecture through cinematography.
“The best movie is like a dream - never know was it or not” - Jim Jarmusch.
The site is Gorky Park in Moscow. The pavilion should be located on the Arts Square right infront of Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, constructed by OMA.
> relations between closed and opened space
The concept is based on 4 elements:
> summer cinema as a fresh open air space
> garage as a simple and utility space
> cinematography as an imaginative parameter
> time as an evanescence and cycle parameter
Form finding is based on site analysis and creation of flexible comfortable pavilion.
The pavilion proposes 3 options of transformation from open to closed for possible change depending on the weather and the type of event.
The pavilion consists of 2 parts: framework and facade system.
Scaffolding system LAYHER was used as a framework to reduce cost, easy installation and dismantling. Pavilion frame is composed from 8 typical elements.
PVC strips form multi-layered double skin facade. This approach helped to create bright and remarkable temporary architecture. Visually, the material has something in common with the Garage museum building.
The design proposal suggests 2 types of strips to be used:
- blue transparent as a facade material
- white opaque blackout as an interior material
Framework can be used after the end of the pavilion functioning in many ways: as a scaffolding, scene or exhibition facilities.
Also the elements of the framework can be taken for rent for 4 months.
Limited edition of souvenirs can be made of PVC strips and later be sold in Garage Shop.
GARAGE SCREEN is a comfortable pavilion that reflects the atmosphere of summer.
The long-awaited, ephemeral and fleeting.
