The aim is to design a temporary, freestanding, transportable and contemporary showcase Pavilion to be installed in the Museum Gardens providing an inspirational space where visiting architects, designers, families or general public can stand, seat around to admire, share discussions about design or simply relax in the unique setting of the Gardens.
The 2019 Triumph Pavilion theme is “Light”, hence the Pavilion will be entitled “Light Pavilion”. It a theme that focuses on the interplay of natural light and shadow to highlight aspects of a design, strengthen its form or control the circulation. it is a topic we as organisers hope will inspire architects and designers to explore the fascinating ways in which light and shade within and around a structure plays a creatively part in defining the architecture and interiors. It will investigate the impact on mood and how it allows us to act, behave, think and reflect when we encounter such design or architecture.
In the practice of architecture, daylighting refers to the use of natural light, be it brilliant sunlight or muted overcast light, to support the visual demands of building users. Natural light is a dynamic and ephemeral tool for expressing the quality of space. It can also add to the sustainable credential of an architecture and help create that balance between form and function. Research supports daylighting’s positive effect on building performance and human health.
