Our proposal for the Norwegian Pavilion at the Frankfurt Book Fair (October 2019) received the runner-up jury award ‘INNKJØP’ attributed to three teams amongst a total of 66 entries! Two honourable mentions were also given. “Cave” and “Clearing” are respectively convex and concave circular pavilions that use structural terraced wood elements. Books are made available for consultation to all visitors in-between the wood lamellas of the stepped structures. The project is based on the symbolism of platonic shapes. It utilizes the warmth and modular properties of wood to create cosy spaces for individual reading, press interviews, meetings, debates, art shows or lectures.
