'The Pavilion' in Johannesburg will be made by David Adjaye, and aims to bring about a cultural awareness in the area.
The design is temporary, and is set to be built in an area where the public space isn't used as much as it could be. A train station is nearby, making it an area where people are constantly coming and going, but never taking a second to appreciate the area. The hope is that this pavilion will give people something to look at and focus their attention on. Not only will it offer a break from everyday life, but also provide an opportunity for interaction between visitors.
David Adjaye is a well-known architect, and his proposed design will certainly gain recognition once it's complete.
