Carmody Groarke completes Frieze Art Fair pavilions

Carmody Groarke has released these pictures of its temporary pavilions for the annual Frieze Art Fair in London’s Regents park

The temporary, interlinked, timber-framed structures sit around the 20,000m² main exhibition tents which each autumn host contemporary galleries from around the globe representing more than 1,000 artists.

Due to open tomorrow (13 October), the Carmody Groarke-designed pavilions house all of the public hospitality and VIP functions, located away from the exhibition spaces.

According to the London-based practice, which created a similarly low-cost, quick-build ‘pop-up’ showstopper on top of the Westfield Stratford City development next to the Olympic Park last June (AJ 25.06.2010), the structures are ‘timber-lined rooms arranged around the existing trees within the park’.

The project also includes a series of felt-lined architectural installations within the main exhibition tents, providing spaces for ‘resting and refreshment within the overall epic scale of the fair’.

Other architects to have previously worked on the international art fair include: Caruso St John (2008-2010), Jamie Fobert (2006–2007) and David Adjaye (2003-2005).
