Production : Yorkshire
Design : Various ArchitectsDescription :
Norwegian Various Architects designed a new mobile pavilion constructed from a network of inflatable tubes that are arranged in a pattern derived from the atomic structure of diamonds.The winning pavilion will be located at various sites in Yorkshire and Humberside, UK, and used for small gatherings or large events such as film screenings or concerts.The Yorkshire Diamond Pavilion is an unique and iconic venue that is designed to represent Yorkshire Forward at events around Yorkshire and Humber or further abroad. The project is an attraction in itself with a striking exterior in the form of inflatable tubes arranged in the atomic structure of diamonds. The 20 x 26 x 10 metre diamond grid volume is mined out to form a cavernous interior space reminiscent of the coalmines of Yorkshire. Light and airshafts pierce the structure providing natural light and ventilation.The structure’s inflatable skin is specified as a fire retardant, PVC coated, UV stabilised, high tenacity, woven polyester base cloth. The inflatable skin is 100% recyclable using the Texyloop process. Due to the constant monitoring of pressure by the fans, the structure will remain standing even if punctured or vandalized. Minor repairs to the skin can be made on-site, and larger segments can be repaired or replaced seamlessly in the factory.
