the city of salzburg, austria has seen completion of soma’s music pavilion for the second annual salzburg biennale. as designboom previously reported, the temporary structure will house a variety of events – including concerts, screening and talks – for the contemporary music festival.

based on rule and variation, a theme that is inherent to both architecture and music, the structure features simple repetitious elements that provoke curiosity and entices visitors to enter.

a mass of single sticks merge into a singular, permeable structure that changes in its appearance throughout the day, according to the different light conditions. deceptive in its form and materiality, the reflective pavilion allows for an ambivalent reading as both singular members and a merging conglomerate, depending on the distance it is viewed from. while irregular, the arrangement still shows as a homogeneous distribution of density and rhythm.
