following a successful kickstarter campaign, the ‘city of dreams pavilion’ by izaskun chinichilla architects (see previous designboom coverage here) has been completed. the project appropriates naturally occurring structures to create an adaptable installation able to change with time and context. architecture must alter itself to cope with uncertain budgets, social changes, and ecological dynamics. the design utilizes flexibility to fulfill needs and wants in constant flux, and does so in a natural, intuitive fashion.

as outlined in their original concept, the ‘city of dreams pavilion’ was realized with only recycled materials. broken umbrellas, old stools, wrecked bicycle and car rims are the primary components; sourced from several institution within the greater new york area. after dismantling, it is proposed that all elements will be reused in various situations, albeit not as a whole. individual, self-sufficient units can be pulled from the pavilion and take on a slew of different functions. the ‘city of dreams pavilion’ was built by izaskun chinchilla architects with help from volunteers, FIGMENT, the emerging new york architects committee, and the structural engineers association of new york. it is on display on governors island in new york city, new york.
