Arhiolo Pavilion


Hansen House, Jerusalem.


The Pavilion is a site specific work at Hansen House garden, it consists of  an open seasonal structure built out of waste woven from organic materials collected from the vicinity of the complex, whilst also serving as a bar in its interior.

Beside the nomadic influence of the pavilion’s architecture, the work draws its inspiration from the history of the site that served its residents as an autarkic economy sustaining its own needs.
