The Flower Pavilion
laisné roussel unveils the Flower Pavilion at the entrance of the first edition of the Biennale d’Architecture of Lyon. This event which takes place from June 8th until July 9th at the Sucrière brings together practitioners, operators, researchers, professors, students and manufacturers who are invited to think, work, produce and debate together.
Designed as a playful installation, the Pavilion disrupts the boundaries between inside and outside, between architecture and nature. This exploratory structure is a vision for what could be tomorrow’s architecture.
Erected on the banks of the river Saône, this installation was inspired by greenhouses to
create an upward wander, surrounded by colorful vegetation.
The Flower Pavilion was created within the scope of the project “Habiter” together with Michel Philippon.
A strong collaboration with M-Tech (Marchegay), a pioneer company in greenhouse technologies allowed the team to create a sustainable and costefficient structure.
The double spiral staircase invites the visitor to wander vertically in a fruity and flowery garden and provides access to the belvedere where one can contemplate the surroundings.
The Pavilion is comprised of a tubular, 11.90m high steal structure, which is welded, coated in white, and covered with a thin white metal mesh of 5cm x 5cm.
The double spiral staircase allows for one to ascend up to the belvedere. Two metal slides are attached to the structure.
The flowers hanging from the central core and slides invites visitors to discover a sensorial experience.
