|Abstract:||Pavilon Vivant My building is called Pavilon Vivant which in the french language means Living Pavilon. The reason why it is a living pavilion is because the user of the building uses two parts of the building. The façade half of the building is an atrium with 7 levels. These seven levels are filled with stores, bars, gyms and pools. This is accompanied by the second half of the building which is filled with 6 capsules per level. These capsules can be hired out from 2 hours to weeks and are beneficial for not only people recovering from the pools or from the bars but also people from the adjacent schools and libraries for study purposes and so on. I chose the corner of my existing site plan to design this living pavilion because I believe the corner of any block gets the most attention. Furthermore, the entries help this attention as there is no dignified entry. All three street facades have no doors or windows and is open to anyone from the public. This is accompanied with restaurants and café’s upon entry to attract new comers who have not heard of the building before. I chose to design an atrium façade as it provides interesting views from street view and beyond. The glass from the atrium allows u to see into the life of the building and also the capsules beyond giving the overall building aesthetic an interesting feel, giving the person an urge to wander into the buildings circulation. Lastly, the last important feature and brief towards my pavilion is the fact that the liftcore of the building has been presented as the main feature of the building, moreso than the capsules themselves. This is because the lifcore ventures through the pool allowing people in the lift, people in the pool and people on the pool deck a never before seen experience.|
