‘Flower pavilion’ by Laisné Roussel for Lyon Architecture Biennale, Lyon – France

June 29th, 2017 by Camra’s blog

From now until july 9, 2017, the French city of Lyon is hosting its inaugural Architecture Biennale. As part of the month-long event, Paris-based practice Laisné Roussel has constructed the “Flower pavilion” — an inhabitable installation inspired by greenhouses and the vibrant vegetation they contain. Inside the structure, a double spiral staircase leads visitors through a vertically organized garden to an observation platform designed for contemplation.

Erected on the banks of the river Saône, Laisné Roussel’s playful pavilion seeks to dissolve the boundaries between interior and exterior space, and between the natural and built realms. The temporary building comprises a tubular steel structure that measures almost 12 meters (40 feet) in height. Two non-functioning slides are attached to the pavilion, serving as densely populated planters. Flowers hanging from the structure’s central core further enhance the bucolic environment.

The “Flower pavilion” was created alongside Michel Philippon for Lyon’s first-ever Architecture Biennale. The event unites architects, researchers, professors, students, and manufacturers who are invited to think, work, and debate together. The Biennale runs from june 8 to july 9, 2017.
