Bartlett student to build contest-winning Cornish pavilion

  • Comment

A student from UCL’s Bartlett School of Architecture has won a competition to design a pavilion for a Cornwall sculpture garden

Project backer, the Tremenheere Sculpture Garden in Penzance, confirmed fifth year Bartlett student Alex Gazetas’ design would now be built and that preliminary planning discussions for the project were already underway.

Students at the Bartlett were asked to submit designs for a new pavilion building to hold a range of exhibitions and events for both Tremenheere and the local community

Gazetas said: ‘The intention behind the winning pavilion is to manifest the world of hidden information into physical form’.

The form of the pavilion has been derived from light levels across the site, which were mapped and turned into point cloud data. This was then used to form the ‘cloud-like’ roof, ceiling, floor, lighting, screening and structural elements.

The fibreglass pavilion roof will be made by a local boat builder who created the oval form of the sculpture garden’s James Turrell Skyspace.

The newly opened Tremenheere Sculpture Garden houses sculptures by Paul Nash, James Turrell and Kishio Suga.
