UGUNS pavilion in latvia by DJA refers to the dynamics of fire

latvian studio didzis jaunzems architects (DJA) has designed ‘UGUNS’, a pavilion celebrating the dynamics, fluidity, and shading of fire. made of multiple wooden beams, the installation simulates nine flames, each featuring a symbolically arranged bench inside.

the stacking of wooden beams that shapes the flames is formed by rotating each element through 2.5 degrees from its previous in the row. the seats inside DJA’s pavilion are designed following the principle of a campfire and using the concept of sitting in a circle to unify its people by inviting them to start a conversation.

UGUNS has been created as a result of cooperation between latvian municipalities of rugaji, balvi, vilaka, baltinava, and karsava as part of the project ‘good nature in northern latgale, discover nature explorer in yourself’. five art installations and pavilions across five cities aim to draw people’s attention to nature, helping to develop an understanding of how to respect and preserve it.
