Location: London, UK Date: February 2020 Area: 56m2 Function: Pavilion Status: Concept
Regent’s Playhouse is a pavilion of a stage where the various activities take in place that intends to create communications across the canal. To realise large space with light material, the pavilion uses tarpaulin for its main architectural material which is hung and hoisted only by two structural frames installed on the edges of pontoons. There is a difference in size between the frames which enables the structures to pull and hoist the tarpaulin with wires to create tensions. Regent's Playhouse is a competition entry that seeks the idea to create a floating pavilion at Regent Canal located in the heart of east London.
