A temporary pavilion designed to support the Danish Olympic activities. The structure is built from 2,500 chairs made of recycled plastic. After the Games the pavilion can be raised in new places and lastly sold as individual design pieces. In this way the pavilion will leave a minimal footprint.
The Jury says
It’s more than a building, it is an ecosystem and a very powerful showcase of Danish design today. It shows that this iconic piece of Danish design – a chair – can be so much more. It addresses a fundamental problem with major events – waste – and rethinks how a pavilion is used and financed while still maintaining a high aesthetic quality. It’s almost olympic in its iconic and monumental design.
