A “Pavilion” is a space defined specifically for a non-specific purpose. The specificity is the location and non-specificity is its use. A “Pavilion” is also a prototype of tech-crafted tradition and represents a geo-cultural transformation throughout all cultures. NAPAVILION challenges this typical ideal of a Pavilion by providing specificity in use and non-specificity or adaptability in site.
