Claridge Architects has constructed this timber pavilion in Queen’s Park for the London Design Festival

The timber structure is made up of three interlocking different height volumes clad in diagonal battens.

The pavilion has been built to house Studio Aikieu and Coloni’s ‘Plants Out of Place’ exhibition which celebrates plant species growing wild in the urban environment.

The architect’s view

The lightweight timber structure is composed of three interlocking volumes of varying heights and sits within the leafy surroundings of Queen’s Park. The cladding is made from diagonal battens which have been spaced to allow air and light to permeate the pavilion and let the sun trace patterns across the interior. The direction of the diagonal battens alter from volume to volume enhancing the composition of the three different volumes. One of the volumes is left open to the sky which, along with the cladding, ensures that the pavilion is connected to the surrounding parkland.
