'Pavilion for an Artist,' designed by DHL Architecture, is a creative space for a visionary artist that blends into its natural environment as a result of its camouflaged exterior. The mandate for the studio was to reconsider the artist's role in relationship to society. The visual metaphor emphasizes the an engagement with society as opposed to the artist that extracts him or herself.

Pavilion for an Artist, located in Amsterdam, has mirrors on its exterior that reflect the space around it. The space is located away from the bustling urban center of the city, giving the artist a peaceful place to work and store his or her art objects. The Pavilion for an Artist is part studio part art work in its own right.
