Pavilion Propositions addresses the contemporary pavilion phenomenon and those often temporary and functionless architectural structures commissioned and exhibited by art institutions around the world. This thought-provoking book reclaims the pavilion as an architectural topic, against those who would dismiss the phenomenon as symptomatic of a simple or absolute exhaustion of the critical potential of architecture’s intersection with art. The pavilion phenomenon also occasions a timely interrogation of larger questions that concern the changing relations between culture and the economy – changes that are shifting the planes on which architecture and art meet. Pavilion Propositions is available through Valiz and Perimeter Books.
