The concept of the Munk School Pavilion is “expanding”. The arch formed structure allows for shades and rain protection, which are otherwise lacking in the middle of the Munk School’s courtyard. The material of the pavilion is built of translucent white diamond marble, which is represented with frosted acrylic in the model. The light and translucent material provides the courtyard with an airy atmosphere.
The physical mobility, in expanding, of the pavilion uses the fundamentals of sliding walls; panels with wheels which expand with the use of an actuator. Correspondingly, the panels are supplied with electricity, which ultimately allow them to be automatically slide. Hence, the pavilion uses this technology to expand; compressed in the mornings and slowly expanding throughout the day, until fully stretched by night. Same method is applied to the sliding benches and food trolleys - with the exception that they can be moved manually as well.
