YATA - PAPER PAVILION

The fifth edition of CHART ARCHITECTURE sought pavilion designs in line with notions of sustainable fabrication method with up-cycled materials. Among the five finalists, Paper Pavilion by YATA architects has been chosen as the final winner. This year CHART ARCHITECTURE competition was judged by international architects and artists juries headlined by Bjarke Ingels.

YATA proposes an “appropriate durability” as a new sustainable design method: not to setup excessive architectural strength to the pavilion but rather construct with appropriate materials that only last for the duration of the event. From this perspective, Paper Pavilion is designed by considering paper as architectural material in order to create the appropriate pavilion for 4 days last event.

The fifth edition of CHART ARCHITECTURE sought pavilion designs in line with notions of sustainable construction and fabrication method, urbanization and up-cycled material design. Among the five finalists, Paper Pavilion by Denmark based Japanese architects’ office YATA has been chosen as the final winner.

This year CHART ARCHITECTURE competition was judged by Bjarke Ingels, architect and founder of BIG Bjarke Ingels Group; Bjørnstjerne Christiansen, co-founder of SUPERFLEX; Claus Andersen, owner of Andersen’s Contemporary; Débora Mesa, Débora Mesa, architect and Principal of Ensamble Studio; Dorte Foss, architect; and Simon Frommenwiler, architect and co-founder of HHF Architects.

YATA proposes an “appropriate durability” as a new sustainable design method: not to setup excessive architectural strength to the pavilion but rather construct with appropriate materials that only last for the duration of the event.

From this perspective, Paper Pavilion is designed by considering paper as architectural material in order to create the appropriate pavilion for 4 days last event, CHART. In this condition, paper is the most suitable material because it is both sustainable and strong enough material to accommodate this short-term event.

A “bagworm” is the initial design image of this project, which creates its nest by collecting surrounded materials and well represents the characteristic of the place. Likewise, Paper Pavilion wraps itself with papers from the city, showcasing the citizens’ urban activities, thus celebrates the theme of this year’s CHART “the Living City”. The papers created active interactions between visitors and the architecture, which playfulness was also the core design concept developed through considering paper as a building material.

The main structure of the pavilion is designed movable. This enables the pavilion to be replaced to other cities and rebirth itself with new colors of various places. Moreover, the papers used for the pavilion can be recycled with existing recycle system of the city after the fair. After the fair, the pavilion is actually relocated inside the Kunsthal Charlottenborg museum to be used as a reception for the next coming sea-sons.

YATA will be awarded a mentorship program headlined by Simon Frommenweiler, architect and co-founder of HHF Architects.
