Candidates participating in this competition are asked to design a floating pavilion on the Drava River (Maribor, Slovenia), which would serve as a small stage and a place for contemplation by the river. The pavilion is primarily intended to serve as a venue for smaller events and shows (small bands, discussions with notable guests, wine tasting, etc.), but also as a relaxation site, offering views of the river and the historic city center. The small stage will particularly serve its purpose during the Lent Festival in June as an additional performance stage. It is necessary that the floating construction can be moved easily to another location by the river (if required) and be adapted quickly to different programs. The pavilion should highlight the existing qualities of the area, ensure a better connection between the elevated Lent riverbank and the river and, consequently, invite people closer to the river.
Registration is required, the link is provided on the competition website. There is no registration fee. https://outsider.si/competition-floating-pavilion-on-the-drava-river/
