AIRE Pavilion, Granada, Spain

西班牙格拉納達 AIRE 臨時裝置亭

AIRE pavilion is built on the imaginary of the ephemeral, the fragile and immaterial, alluding to one of the most essential and intangible elements of architecture. As occurs in a tent in the middle of the desert to protect from the sun, or in the airy space of the circus supported by a series of masts, an image that reflects the condition of the unfinished or in the process of being erected with all its corporeity, a half-finished architecture, is constructed. 


AIRE 臨時裝置亭建立在對短暫、脆弱和非物質的想像之上,暗指建築中最重要和無形的元素之一。如同沙漠中的帳篷中用來遮擋陽光,或是一系列由桅杆支撐的馬戲團帳篷,它反映著未完成或正在發生中,一個建造完工的「半成品的建築」。

AIRE is resolved solely by means of three material strategies, which seek to establish an exercise of synthesis, constructive veracity and sustainability. Firstly, a scaffolding system, a reflection of industrial systematization, which, although it has its origins in the very beginnings of the architectural tradition, today represents modularity and globalization in construction, as well as ephemerality and apparent fragility, which is condemned to disappear once the work is finished. This system resolves the load-bearing structure of the pavilion; a resistant fabric that is linked to a lighter one, an envelope of hessian fabric, a symbol of locality, handicraft, the shade (or the control of light), tradition and vernacular knowledge, the recognisable, the commonplace of the area. A way of rescuing Granada's own identity and its climate. Finally, a group of riprap stones from Sierra Elvira (the local quarry) provides the necessary counterweight to the structure and implements new urban furniture in the surroundings of the pavilion, connecting the intervention with Plaza del Humilladero. 



The use of these three materials demonstrates AIRE's commitment to the circular economy, as well as to the value of the local economy and the traditions and trades of Granada. Thus, the scaffolding, which is rented, will have a new use once the pavilion is dismantled; in the same way, the riprap stone will return to its original quarry; and finally, the locally made hessian fabric, will also have a second life, as it is an element widely used as a shade in the city, and can be easily relocated to another public space in Granada.


這三種材料的使用表明了 AIRE 臨時裝置亭對循環經濟的承諾:租來的鷹架在展館拆除後有了新的用途;亂石也會回到原來的採石場;當地製造的粗麻布也將獲得第二次生命,因為它是城市中廣泛用來遮陽的元素,並且可以輕鬆地重新安置到格拉納達的另一處公共空間。
