Architecture Uncomfortable Workshop, also known as AUW, builds a festival pavilion for an event near Lake Balaton in Hungary. The idea behind the structure is to create a safe space, where attendees can "temporarily retreat from noise and crowds."
AUW has been known for its experimentation with wool as a resource for furniture design. This year, the firm is bringing it to the next level as they integrate the material into architecture. The festival pavilion boasts a relatively simple design. The structure is rectangular and narrow, ideal for one person at a time. The base is made with timber, the roof is created with tin but the walls are made with wool. Inside visitors can choose to lie down or sit, immersing themselves in the calming space.
