The Brief: We were approached by Tonkin Lui to produce the pavilion which they had been commissioned to design for the London Festival of Architecture. The studio worked closely with Tonkin Liu from the very early maquettes to developing the design for manufacture. This kind of working relationship is essential to realize a project such as this within a short lead time. It was necessary that the pavilion could be assembled from its component parts in a short period of time, so that it could appear overnight at the various locations where events were taking place within London. It functioned as a meeting place for various talks and forums during the month long festival.
