Student Intervention at the Tschumi Pavilion
25 September 2017
The Tschumi Pavilion (built 1990) lives on with regular artists’ interventions taking advantage of the disorienting effect of the tilted floor and exploring issues of transparency/opacity and domesticity/urbanism. The most recent installation features staggered wooden slats wrapping and intersecting the Glass Video Gallery by three students (Melvin Koolen, Paul Breteler, and Thomas Rosema) from the Groningen Academy of Architecture. Although the original pavilion was meant to be temporary, it remains in use 27 years later as a public vitrine and site of artistic experimentation.
