This bright green pavilion by Polish students Wojciech Nowak and Martynika Bielawska provides spectator stands for a football pitch and a basketball court in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
The rectangular green pavilion frames two sets of cascading staircases, allowing spectators to face either direction.
The Life Stand pavilion was the winning design in a student competition entitled Trimo Urban Crash 2011, organised by building-materials firm Trimo.

Opening of the winning project for the Trimo Urban Crash 2011
The workshop for finalists was mentored by Professor Cyril Shinga from the Chelsea College of Art and Design from the University of Arts – Trimo Research Awards were also granted.
Trimo officially handed over a public architectural installation “Life Stand” – the winning project of the Trimo Urban Crash competition for students of architecture and design which was created by Polish students, Wojciech Nowak from an architectural faculty in Gliwice, and Martynika Bielawska, from an art and design academy in Wroclaw.
The opening event was held in the centre of the residential neighbourhood of Fužine in the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana. The event was opened by the General Manager of Trimo, Tatjana Fink, and the Deputy Mayor of Ljubljana prof. Janez Koželj. A rich accompanying program with the Dunking Devils acrobatic team, the Bast dance group, and the performance of rapper, Adam Velić, ended with a banquet at the Museum of Architecture and Design, where it was the second day of the Trimo Urban Crash workshop for students whose projects were shortlisted in this year’s competition.
The creative workshop entitled “Responsible Architecture”, which was held by Professor Cyril Shing from the Chelsea College of Arts and Design, University of Arts London, and a former associate in the architectural bureau, Zaha Hadid Architects Ltd, London, was attended by 47 finalists from 16 different countries. The three-day workshop at which participants explored the importance of sustainable thinking in architecture and design creativity came to its end one day after the opening event with joint presentations of the finished products at the symposium and one-day excursion across Slovenia.
