Bergen City Pavilion

A multifunctional demountable pavilion for the city of Bergen

Aluminium and partly translucent sandwich panels form the main components of the light weight pavilion. The volume is based on 4 modules which can be used separate or linked, giving it a floor-area varying from 135m2 to 624m2. The main color is a faint mint with LED lights along all sides to allow different coloring and moods, creating a special atmosphere on dark Norwegian winter days. The pavilion’s purpose is generally flexible; so far it is mainly used for cultural events such as the annual gingerbread-city-festival (pepperkakebyen).
