Cluny Summer Pavilion built by local volunteers in five days

An RIBA-funded temporary timber community facility has been installed in Cluny Park, Southend-on-Sea, by newly graduated part two architects Sarah Considine and Melanie Bax.

Cluny Summer Pavilion was built by volunteers in five days and has hosted a series of summer events. The structure will be dismantled and stored for re-use by local people in future summers.

The installation was the result of a two year process of local consultation by Considine and Bax, who created the research initiative and charity We Love the Suburbs.

Organisations including the RIBA, the Big Lottery Fund and the University of Sheffield funded the project.

    Good work. I have often wondered why AA and Nottingham (to name a few) build pavilions for their degree shows and then just trash them afterwards.

  • The AA's don't get trashed - they get carefully dismantled and re erected elsewhere

  • Looks Lovely! Rather more frontline than Bedford Square....Go Bax & Considine
