Temporary structure for Gorky Park

Shigeru Ban has unveiled a temporary pavilion in Moscow’s Gorky Park.

The building will run across 2,400sq m and remain in the park until late next year. It will host exhibitions and educational activities after which it will be dedicated to experimental projects.

The Japanese practice, which provided temporary accommodation to victims of last year’s Christchurch earthquake in New Zealand, has created the pavilion on behalf of the Moscow-based arts group, Garage Center for Contemporary Culture. It eventually wants to build a permanent 8,500 sq m pavilion in the park.

The first exhibition at the temporary pavilion will be a history of temporary structures that have featured in the park.
