mecanoo, alongside michael van gessel, delva landscape architects and jojko + nawrocki architekci, has been chosen to complete a new public garden and pavilion in poland, part of a park in the grounds of warsaw’s royal łazienki museum. the ‘garden of the 21st century’ will bring a renewed sense of culture and vibrancy to the area, showcasing a variety of different exhibitions and hosting educational activities and workshops.

the pavilion appears to emerge from the walkways which surround it, integrating the structure within its environment. entry to the underground pavilion is provided through two openings in the structure’s façade, while another access point is embedded within the newly sculpted landscape. a central hall connects two larger exhibition rooms, with two ancillary volumes providing additional gallery space. a spiral staircase links the two levels of the interior. large round skylights draw carefully controlled levels of light into the interior, establishing a relationship with the garden and walkway above.

the judging panel praised the design for its environmental considerations which include a natural green roof for insulation. LED lighting, 500% more energy efficient than conventional solutions, is used throughout, while local materials are used exclusively in cladding and finishing the structure, minimizing the project’s carbon footprint.
