Athens Olympics Pavilions
ephemeral structures

Project status: Competition 2002
Client: City of Athens
Team: smo architektur
Location: Athens, Greece

There is no specific site in Athens is given for the location of the structures.
The pavilions should be so designed that thy can be er-located and erected in other cities for different events.
Our idea is to create structure that develops out of the parameter of each new site – urban development, climate, function, size, light, statics - and can be generated again and again, changing and metamorphosing each time. We envisage a truly unique but transient ephemeral form that loges itself like a parasite in the established structures of any site.
Our design proceed from a single adding element, which not only provides the basic structure but functions as a docking place for the faced elements, the utility supports and the inner surfaces. The dimensions of the parts are designed to allow for soft shaping as well as more angular forms. All parts and elements can be easily fixed and adjusted at different angels and in various positions.
