krupinski/krupinska cuts copenhagen garden with cross-shaped timber pavilion

swedish design firm krupinski/krupinska arkitekter has designed a cross-shaped wooden pavilion for king garden in copenhagen. one of sixty four entries in an international competition, the structure is now open to the public, working with the garden’s existing features, neighboring rosenborg castle, and current landscaping. unlike the earlier baroque and renaissance planners that played key roles in the garden’s design, the new pavilion aims to disrupt the current orthogonal organization to create new curated spaces.

the pavilion mimics elements of the surrounding trees. ‘the promenade through the pavilion is a continuation of the movement in the king´s garden where the regularly placed columns creates a rhythm that reminds of passing tree trunks while the distance between the tree members of the roof filters the light similarly to a tree crown,’ krupinski/krupinska arkitekter state in their description of the pavilion experience.

the cross-shaped pavilion segments the existing space into quadrants. each section establishes a different, and distinct environment — making its visitors more aware of the various spacial experiences within king’s garden. the pavilion works to isolate smaller areas, allowing existing features, that would otherwise go unnoticed, to become primary elements of the spaces.

‘the outdoor spaces are experienced differently depending on if they are framed by bushes, tress, grass or a building,’ the architects continue. ‘the pavilion in turn is experienced, regardless of it´s constant section, differently depending in what direction one walks, from where the sun shines or what outdoor space one passes.’
