Bartlett School of Architecture tutor Izaskun Chinchilla has been named joint winner in New York’s City of Dreams Pavilion contest

Winning designs by the academic’s practice – Izaskun Chinchilla Architects – and local firm BanG Studio will be built on Governors Island this summer.

The studio’s ‘Organic Growth Pavilion’ will feature flower structures inspired by hydrangeas. The dome-shaped structure will be constructed from broken umbrellas and bicycle wheels.

According to a statement from the Bartlett: The proposal draws awareness to the large amount of waste in landfills and provides solutions for recycling the pavilion after its use, such as indoor chandeliers and seasonal protection for outdoor spaces.’

BanG Studio’s ‘Billion Oyster Pavilion’ will meanwhile feature a woven canopy constructed from the same materials used to restore harbours.

Chinchilla teaches Bartlett MArch Architecture Unit 22 and her studio is based in both London and Madrid.

The competition was organised by FIGMENT and backed by the Emerging New York Architects Committee of the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter and the Structural Engineers Association of New York.
