Presentation of the 2015 Pavilion

Montpellier, France

Association Champ Libre - Festival des Architectures Vives (FAV)

The FAV Pavilion


Montpellier, France, 2015-04-07 -

The Pavilion is the starting point of the Festival des Architectures Vives. It aims at informing the visitors and guiding them in their journey. It also is the place of the public's vote. Ideally located in the heart of Montpellier, the Pavilion is a major work. It will be open from Wednesday June 3rd, to Sunday June 14th, 2015; 9:00am-7:00pm.


The Pavilion has many purposes: 

- Be the place to welcome and inform the public,

- Be the meeting point where to start the route, as its visibility is obvious,

- Link with past editions, in images and through the documentation of FAV's books since 2006.

 

It also is: 

- The place where the public votes for the best installation,

- The place for the awards ceremony.

  

The Pavilion is open to public one week before the sites are.

  

The Montpellier FAV 2012 and 2013 pavilions are exhibited at the 'École Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture' of the city. The 2012 edition has also been presented at Pierres Vives, as part of the exhibition « Morceaux choisis » in June 2013. 


The FAV Pavilion in Montpellier


For the 10th edition of the Festival des Architectures Vives in Montpellier, the Pavilion will be created by the NAS Architecture, Hadrien BALALUD DE SAINT JEAN, Guillaume GIRAUD and Johan LAURE.


The team


NAS Architecture was founded in 2013. Gathering personal experiences, the agency results from a series of collaborations that were initiated in recent years, like during several national and international competitions.

 

Thus, NAS Architecture continues to develop using the same dynamics and works on a multitude of projects with no distinction of scale or location; showing the same implication in drawing pavilions than urban projects. Each project becomes an opportunity to apply a posture to a place or a society in order to open a speech with various project stakeholders.

 

The dynamics of the projects is based on a willing to develop the qualities and uses of a place, by turning constraints into benefits. The work of the agency intends to be contextual and uses the landscape, usages and technical specifications of the region as reference components that resonate within a specific program.

 

NAS advocates the design of living spaces in line with contemporary expectations of societies in perpetual evolution.


The project 


At the occasion of the Festival des Architectures Vives 10th anniversary and its exceptional location in the the Hotel Saint-Côme's court, the standpoint of the Pavilion must be thoughtful and contextual. It was important to use the various elements which put rhythm into the court as a base to the global shape development of the Pavilion. Taking root in the ground, the Pavilion expands in a multiplicity of randomly set terraces to be used by visitors as a reading space, to rest  or as a scene for the numerous events that proceed during the festival. The Pavilion then comes to include the surrounding columns to form a huge reception space for the public. Due to its form and generosity, its interiority appeals. Made up of a mural scenography, this space becomes an information and meeting point during the Festival.

 

The unit is composed of medium’s plates tinted of anthracite color in the external mass, thus privileging a mono material which mainly highlights the form variations and the global unit. The interior is composed of clear colors which contrast with the external surface and invite the public to enter. This space is beam, neither stopping the glance nor the passage. The use of the Pavilion wants to be fluid and ergonomic.

 

More than a simple object, this Pavilion is an architectural tool. An articulation that proposes more than it imposes.  It is possible to turn around it, cross it, climb above it… The goal is to offer, with a small surface, a large number of possible uses.

 

Thus, the Pavilion aims at being a friendly and sharing meeting space; in the image of the FAV. A place where to understand the Festival, to talk about it and to express on it.
