YOUNG ARCHITECTS BUILT PAVILIONS FOR KEUNE DESIGN PROJECT
BA (Hons) Interior Architecture & Design students took part at a project organized by the KEUNE Design international school. They explored the architectural theory on the example of building pavilions at one-to-one scale.
KEUNE Design is an international school headquartered in the Netherlands. In Moscow, KEUNE Design occupies a building of the territory of the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia. An open terrace that belongs to the school and that has not been used much became a place for the live project by BHSAD students.
This year, the students guided by curators James O’Brien and Joseph van der Steen inquired into fragmentation of family live using avant-garde/constructivist theory – they had to build three pavilions that would serve as a ‘social objects’ on the University’s campus. The students built the pavilions with their own hands based on their previous research in methodology for building such constructions from timber.
The students covered all stages of thorough design planning with the use of large-scale models, scaled-down models and fragments to familiarize with the method for creating constructions from materials in use as a primary instrument of design.
This resulted in three pavilions that are full-fledged architectural objects themselves and demonstrate excellent practical skills of the students.
