Short description of the project The floating pavilion was designed as a stage for various events and can be towed to different locations on the canals of Groningen. Its architectural form was inspired by concepts of movement, dream , surprise, etc. The raft-like concrete structure at the base - 25m long, 6m wide and 2,8m high - houses dressing rooms, sanatary facilities and accomodation for performers. Its top surface forms the stage, om each of the long edges of which is a single row of high-backed, folding metal seats. The roof consists of two spiral elements that coil in opposite directions, with a translucent polyester membrane spanned between them. It conveys an impression of lightness and makes this mobile pavilion a striking spectacle in its own.
