unPavilion on Dezeen

Recently the floating unPAVILION was featured in Dezeen. 

The floating unPAVILION is a statement piece that points to the counterproductive nature of greenwashing in our current environmental crisis. The washing machine sitting on an old concrete barge represents the business as usual scenario: ignoring or explaining away our harmful activities, while sea level rises due to those same activities force us further adrift. 

The OBEL AWARD has rescued a concrete barge otherwise slated for demolition and uses it to highlight a global challenge during the World Congress of Architects (UIA) in Copenhagen in July 2023. After the UIA, the barge will be retrofitted to become a space of learning for architecture students.
