Serralves Pavilion

The pavilion exhibits a video art piece from the 32ª São Paulo Art Biennale by Bárbara Wagner & Benjamin de Burca. Surrounded by the gardens of Serralves in Porto, it is an architectural object that explores the ambiguity between the presented work and its context.
FAHR proposes an architecture that responds simultaneously to two necessities, one more objective and functional, presenting a support for an artistic work, and another more vanguardist and experimental, in a way promoting an architecture exhibition.
Inspired by this duality, the studio designed an object that proposes an intriguing dialogue between architectural scale and the natural setting of Serralves. The pavilion softly stands supported by only two points that subtly connect with the natural surroundings, thus underlining the park’s topography, vegetation, and meandering paths.
