White reveals ‘Swedish barn-like’ pavilion for Design Week

White Arkitekter's Clerkenwell Design Week Pavilion
  • Comment

White Arkitekter has revealed its designs for a pavilion which will be installed at St John’s Square for Clerkenwell Design Week 

The coloured ‘barn-like’ pavilion has been designed to reflect the practice’s Scandinavian roots.

It will be built from Equitone cladding panels arranged in fin-like sections creating an open shelter.

The space, named Museum of Making, will host workshops and demonstrations on the art of making as part of the annual Clerkenwell Design Week.

Linda Thiel, head of White’s London studio, said: ‘The idea was to deconstruct the most basic Scandinavian archetype, to show the simplicity of the form yet in a new way. We were inspired by the history of making and trading in Clerkenwell.

‘Our design goal was to create an inviting place which showcases both the traditional and contemporary making expressions - a place where people can meet, mend, exchange knowledge and services. We look forward to seeing The Museum of Making come to life with visitors at this exciting and important event.’

The pavilion will be in place between 24 – 26 May.
