Gaelic word for knowledge. Travelling pavilion to promote architecture and bring information about the 2016 festival to all the land.
Ask a Question. Start a Conversation. Encourage Collaboration.
‘Eolas’ Pavilion aims to create a dialogue with a community. A Trailer provides the means of mobility which allows the pavilion to travel the length of the chapter from Dumfries to the Isle of Coll inhabiting communities for a period of time. The pavilion clad in vertical timber battens will act as a large scale public intervention and house a public fuelled art piece which will take the shape of a data map, generated by asking curious residents a simple architectural question.
The pavilion offers shelter and the use of temporary, removable pieces of furniture which attach to the pavilions exterior transforms the structure into a back drop for events, workshops and exhibitions organised by the communities themselves and the GIA.
A piece of architecture without bonds, the structure can occupy a community and depart without leaving any marks.
