israeli designer omri revesz references the soviet ‘agit-train’ and ‘agit-cinema’, which, when the new state was torn apart by the civil war, became the most rapid and effective way to approach and unite people all over the country. the pavilion is comprised of a collapsible modular wooden structure, held together by metal elements inspired by the logic of russian constructivism. the structure expands and adjusts to the activity being held in the pavilion, be it a conference, screening, artistic performance or spontaneous stop. the curtain mechanism allows for activities happening in the space to be visible or hidden from the outside. the pavilion can be used for a variety of social and cultural purposes.
