House of Europe

The fact that the installation of the proposed solution will be exclusively in the warm season, allows us to create an open structure, emphasized by planes, which creates the ideal conditions for interaction and diversity of scenarios of the pavilion.

The large number of vertical planes makes it possible to place visual information for its perception from different viewpoints in distance, which, in turn, supports the expansion of the zone of influence of the pavilion’s location on the surrounding society. The proposed concept of cross-sectional space allows to place this structure in central squares, parks or pedestrian zones without disturbing the existing flow of people.

We take a 40-foot shipping container as a base. We cut long walls of a container for further usage. The use of a single module for the construction of the pavilion allows to reduce production costs and to easily replace any element in case of damage.

For the pavilion we need 4 containers, 3 of which we cut. The solid (uncut) container contains the front desk, bookcrossing and exhibition space. The rest of the space is used to store furniture, appliances and other related materials. To assemble the pavilion, we use a crane that will be rented for easy and time-saving installation and reinstallation.

The rigidity of the construction is ensured by the container at the first level. Metal tubes and cables are used to reinforce the structure at the third level. The walls are joined at the corners by the docking elements of the container and additionally fixed by bolts.
