Project details
Rebecca ensured that a strong visual identity for the pavilion was created whilst allowing the display of art to remain the focus. She employed the use of simple, low cost materials and put them together in such a way as to fulfil the sophisticated aspirations of client and guest. A plywood lattice was used as an effective architectural structure to detract from the surrounding services, and open up views of the adjacent park landscape. The contrast of this calm ‘retreat’ to the frenetic activity of the main art fair caught the attention of client and celebrity alike.

This was the third consecutive year Rebecca Richwhite was commissioned to design the client’s pavilion.
