Description

The basic studies in the Department of Architecture explore the most common building materials through various assignments. The academic chair of Building Technologies introduced students to concrete and its structural features in Basic course 1 during the springs of 2017 and 2018.
The assignment was to build a Sensory Pavilion – a small concrete structure, made with groupwork. The task was short and intense, with both architecture students and landscape architecture students involved.
The site, an outdoor exhibition area, was situated at Vanhankaupunginlahti in Helsinki. The area consisted of individually built concrete pavilions of about 30 square meters in size, placed on the site at the individual choice of each group. The theme of the pavilions had to embody a characteristic element of the scene or a natural element, such as a view, sound, water, daylight rotation or vegetation. All of the pavilions had to be covered, and their surrounding environment had to be studied. The pavilions were designed and executed in concrete in groups of four to five people on a scale of 1:10.

Sensory Pavillions Exhibition was part of Helsinki design week Main events 2018. Pavillions were exhibited in Aalto University,Harald Herlin Learning Center, Otaniementie 9,Espoo
