Paris Pavilion: The Art of Peace Competition Jury Notes

WINNER

Moussa Belkacem (France)

Paris Pavilion competition winner

I found this proposal was ingeniously simple, making a gentle, peaceful mark on the site. Although the design is focused on ‘landscape intervention’ rather than ‘architecture intervention’ it feels appropriate. The detail will be important, I don’t understand how the chalk will be supplied, presented and controlled, however the proposal does in my view really follow the brief and focuses on an unconvoluted interpretation of it.

This project is a very poetic and symbolic answer to the brief. We are very sensible to the minimal use of material to create a real effect based on the perception of the surrounding and fading of chaos. It also shows a good understanding of the Parisian practice of Champ de Mars for picnic and reunion. From the bottom of the hole to the top of the side hill the perception of the visitor will manage to create the feeling of an invisible boundary. This approach is a meaningful and right intervention to create a pavilion mixing the visible and the invisible evolving from the dark time of pain to the bright time of peace and hope.

SECOND PRIZE

Hankang Jin, Dinullah Bayu Ibrahim (Italy)

Paris Pavilion competition 2nd prize

I enjoyed this proposal but found the chaos/peace analogy too literal. I also have concerns about the architectural merit of the representation of chaos in the angular elements out with the dome. However the focus on nature, a tree, is positive, as nature can assist humanity to focus on macro issues instead of micro divisive issues. A key issue will be what kind of tree, how large and how it would be maintained and protected. The exterior isn’t as inviting as the other two proposals and in some weather conditions and lighting might seem rather off-putting and bleak.

This project is a right and complete answer to the brief. We are very sensible to the interpretation and formal result of the sanctuary and chaos concept. The architectural object becomes an experience where a protection nest emerges inside of the surrounding chaos. The path of the visitor offers a succession of intense moment animated by different perceptions of strong simples (Tree, Sky, surrounding landscape…). This approach is a rich answer that explores the symbolism and duality with architecture.

THIRD PRIZE

Yang Fei, Weizhe Gao (China)

Paris Pavilion competition 3rd prize

This proposal is a little more complex and involves more than one architectural idea, a series of forms and spaces intended to focus visitors’ minds on peace and conflict resolution in the world. I liked the simple strong mirrored form set within a recessed square. The architectural promenade is enticing, the ramp, reflective pool and ‘bridge’ are good devices that have been used down the ages in successful public realm designs.

This project is a very sensitive and meaningful answer to the brief. We are very sensible to the understanding of the site spirit and integration into the Champs de Mars & Parisian landscape. The project ambition mixing the duty of memory and the hope for peace in a healing process will make the pavilion evolve in an original approach full of meaning and symbolic. The approach is creative, poetic, and will create a strong interaction with the visitor.
