    Strong influence of Russian constructivism during `20

    I don’t know where the influence came from…but I went there and thought it was pretty average. Last year’s was nicer.

    You’ve toned the colours down somewhat in these photos, in actual fact it is so red and vibrant it takes you aback… Inside the central space your view of the world is totally changed, the greens of the surrounding trees are exaggerated, you feel part of a strange cinematic effect and you can’t tell exactly what’s in the cup you’re drinking from. Sometimes architecture should assault your senses and this is an occasion when it does just that.

    So it imparts a special spatial experience just by virtue of its colour? That would seem like a cop-out to me; try and visualize the pavilion in the normalized material vocabulary of regular buildings and you would see that spatially its nothing special, the only interest it brings comes from its red colour, in which case it is (in terms of form & space) devoid of any architectural interest, the swooping wall becomes extraneous. Better to just make it a box. I do agree that the colour creates a cinematic effect though.
