Radio Pavilion


The idea of the radio pavilion consists of the opportunity to constantly listen to real-time music. The sound is guided straight down from the decorative megaphones, located on the ceiling of the awning, without increasing the sound field in the surroundings. During the evening the radio pavilion turns into an illuminating object thanks to the megaphone shaped lamps on the ceiling.

The aim of this object of art is to form a spontaneous self-perception and vision for the citizen of how the radio works, through the combination of eye contact with the building and the sound which originates from the object. Radio work is a sound-based, non-illustrated creation – thus a real, visible and physical object, where the audio from the megaphones takes place and the physical presence of a person allows them to envision the motion inside the radio house.

The radio pavilion tries to serve several functions as an art project:

-Tries to delicately become one with the surrounding architecture;
-Expand the sensitive sphere of influence of good architecture outside the perimeter of the building;
-To create an experience and give immediate indication of what goes on inside the building;
-Actively make the citizen take part in consuming the piece of art;
-Fulfill the functions of a bus pavilion.
