Students from Elisava, together with the collaboration of two professionals, have built 3KMS, a summer pavilion. The professionals are Eugeni Bach and Anthony Burrill. Egueni it’s working as an architect in Anna & Eugeni Bach. This architect studio works constantly as a team, applying new concepts, thinking also in the economics and natural resources. On the other hand, Anthony Burrill is an artist and graphic designer. The words and the languages are his main tools, known for his perssuasive and impactant messages.
So, in this way, this duo has guided to the students to build 3KMS, a wood pavilion. A temporal installation, but the main topic of this is that it has been built in a limited time: 5 days. Following this way, on the other hand, the pragmatic vision of one of the greatest designers, Enzo Mari. The challenge was this, to develope the habilities of future designers and makers in a short period of time to achieve an optimum and real result.
‘There are a lot of decisions to take when it’s given an structure in a public space in a short period of time, and we wanted to expose to the students this critical situation’ – Eugeni Bach
3KMS is the result of a workshop given from the university, where the topic was ‘the creativity inside the simple resources’. And also there were a fusion bewteen the students from the master of Ephimeral Architecture and Temporal Spaces (MEATS) and the master of Graphic Design (MDG).
One of the challenge also, it was the temporality of this ephimeral installation. So, not only a material level, but also as a constructive, it has been tried to use the minimum resources. The structure is made of 660 wands of pine wood of 45×45 mm of thickness and 4.500mm of lenght. The upper part it’s made of graphic panels of medium density fibrewood (MDF) of 18mm, elaborated with Computer Numeric Control (CNC).
This pavilion it can be found in the terrasse of the 3th floor in the same school. And the naming of this comes from the lineal amount of wood used in its construction.
