In recent years, demands for pavilion architectures for short-term events are increasing. Although most of pavilions are durable for longer use, many of them are torn down and disposed after events. Responding such situations, Paper Pavilion is designed to propose sustainable design method while indicating unique possibilities of short-lived architecture.
The pavilion is created for 3 days last event, Copenhagen Art Fair. It proposes “appropriate durability” as a new sustainable design method: not to setup excessive architectural strength, but rather construct with appropriate material that only lasts for duration of the event. Paper Pavilion up-cycles used papers collected from the city, showcasing urban activities reflected on papers on its façade, achieving unique interactions between architecture and visitors.
As numbers of short-life architectures are increasing, we believe it’s significant to develop sustainable design methods for the future of architecture.


Copenhagen Art Fair (CHART) is the most leading contemporary art fair in the Scandinavian region. Over 20,000 people visits within 3 days event period. Paper Pavilion questions the visitors, how we can create sustainable future while celebrating our vivid urbanization?

As Paper Pavilion is designed movable, it's relocated in Kunsthal Charlottenborg Museum locating in the heart of Copenhagen. The pavilion is redesigned to be a reception counter for the museum.

Paper Pavilion is made by used papers collected from all around the city of Copenhagen. Since all activities of the city are reflected on papers, the facade of pavilion became urban showcase that celebrates our living city.

Urban showcase of Paper Pavilion created unique interactions between architecture and visitors. As the facade provides overview of the recent various activities happened in the city, citizens rediscover the diversity of their community. Playfulness is always the great key to create better sustainable designs.

The pavilion is functioned as a gastronomy while the fair. The lights coming through between the papers provide different perspectives all around the pavilion.
