Azores. Mezzo Atelier completes the temporary home for an art festival

Featuring an archetypical pitched roof, the modular wooden structure has been designed to host different activities and interact with the artists.

Mezzo Atelier, Walk&Talk Pavilion, Ponta Delgada, Azores, Portugal, 2018

Mezzo Atelier has completed a temporary pavilion for Walk&Talk, an interdisciplinary festival held every year in the Azores. The project is inspired by forms and proportions of the traditional Azorean houses. Its structure consists of a series of portals and, like a church, has a free central nave and a perimeter walkway. The wooden frame allows the "house" of the festival to be variable in the size and configurations. The project can host the most diverse functions: workshops and conferences, breakfasts and dinners, concerts and performances. The flexibility of the pavilion allows artists the creative appropriation of the structure and the square in which it is located.
