This Outdoor Pavilion is Made of Strips of Fabric That Can Twist and Turn

An outdoor pavilion was designed in Latvia for a Nature Concert Hall that not only acts as a functional structure but also as an artful sculpture. The pavilion was created by Didzis Juanzems Arhitektura, with the mindset that the piece of architecture that would house live arts should also be an inspiring conversation piece itself.

Looking like a 3D zigzag that touches one end to the other in a cube design, the structure is highly angled and takes on a futuristic look. It fits the Nature Concert Hall's band as well as a 20-person chamber orchestra.

The high-peaked angled walls act as screen-like surfaces for projections, while the white strips of material it is made up of can be creatively twisted and turned like window blinds to create different visual effects. This outdoor pavilion is a great example of the European desire to create architecture that is as beautiful as it is functional.
