The project involves creating a series of small temporary structures that will emerge across the city as part of Sheffield Design Week.
The purpose of the pavilions is to draw attention to the importance of design in Sheffield and wider society, drawing on the rich design history of Sheffield Hallam University.
The Pavilions will be destinations for conversation, interaction and discovery. The Pavilions will be located in key visible locations in the city. The largest Pavilion will be located outside Sheffield Train Station.
A key objective will be to provide a space where students and academics can engage with the Sheffield Design Week audience. The pavilion designs will respond to a brief of flexibility, durability, creativity, environmental impact and cost and will be innovative places and spaces for dialogue and creative thought. Parallel to the Pavilions will be a symposium event bringing together interest groups to hear from speakers.
The project is a collaboration between; Patrick Murphy (Sheffield Design Week & MADE NORTH) Paul King (Undergraduate Course Leader for Architecture, SHU) Sam Vardy (Postgraduate Course Leader for Architecture, SHU).
