A neo-romantic pavilion at the intersection of poetry and architectureAll art and literature movements are doomed to return. Some do it more than others. The more complex and multifaceted one movement and the more grass-roots support, the better chance of returning. Romanticism is one of the movements who keep coming back. Almost every era has its romanticism. We've felt romantic winds blow and with a neo-romantic approach we've started our journey towards graduation. During our time at Architecture we´ve missed working with hands on-projects, to have an idea and execute it all the way. No we want to try this in our Master Thesis and we have decided to make a smaller building which we will have the time to execute. It will be a project where we work with materiality and spatiality in a smaller scale with a poetic focus. The building will be in the intersection of poetry and architecture. We investigate the evanescence of time, interactivity and our own ability to prosecute an idea. Having the destructible and self detonating as our starting point and inspiration, we have decided to make a pavilion that is disposable for visitors during a limited time. The facade of the pavilion will consist of firewood. In the heart of the pavilion there will be a fire place. The visitors pick firewood from the facade to maintain the fire giving the facade an ever changing expression. When the facade has run out of firewood and the fire is extinct the project is either finished or can be built up again.
