Ephemeral Urbanism Pavilion

Client: Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez
Project Directors: Felipe Vera, Raul Merhotra
Collaborators: José Mayoral, Serena Dambrosio, Paulina Leyton, Ignacia Acebedo, Tomás Cortínez

Architects Felipe Vera (Chile) and Rahul Merhotra (India) curated this pavilion shown in the Arsenale building of the International Bienale of Architecture 2016 in Venice.

Through a series of textile panels hung from a structure made of bamboo canes, the exhibition brings information about temporary urban-like structures such as religious festivals, refugee camps or mining colonies, and raises questions on the need of permanency of architectural projects.
