The Suitcase Pavilion

Second year Tim Burwell presented his crit this week and definitely stood out with his large scale model and colourful drawings.  He amazed and wowed his critters and peers with his inventive idea for a mobile pavilion.  The underlying idea was that a structure could be assembled by multiple units of his pull-out suitcase canopies.  A shelter could be built anywhere as the structure moves with you and changes with the interactions with your hands.

His simple, coherent explanation of his concept was refreshing in comparison to the “uhs” and “ums” of many other students’ crits.

The playful nature of his pavilion project was also a nice change to other more somber, shyer projects.

This is just a taste of the wild minds that attend Carleton architecture. Hope you enjoy!
