    How’s this for an impressive temporary structure? The architects at modulorbeat, along with students from the Münster School of Architecture, designed then physically built this urban jewel in just six weeks.

    The brief was to design a temporary pavilion to sit beside the LWL State Museum. The pavilion hosted workshops discussing the craftsmanship of the gold artifacts being exhibited in the Museum.

     

     

    The design team developed a windmill plan which was clad in gold copper sheeting. Full height windows were located at the termination of each wing, allowing a visual conversation with the general public. Although appearing regular in plan, that regularity was dissolved at eye level, translating into an experience of constantly shifting, sculptural geometry. Pair this geometry with that shimmering cladding and you have yourself a winning combination.

    Surprisingly, the materials were largely sourced from ordinary hardware stores. You’d expect a structure of this nature to be a little more agricultural in its detailing but no, not here. Look at the seamless junctions around the windows. That’s no backyard job, my friends. Those students must have had some mighty nimble fingers.

    - Ella.
