Amsterdam Pavilion at Amsterdam Biennial
D.I.Y. perpetual vernissage pavilion
The Mediamatic Amsterdam Biennial 2009 presented an overview of underground art scenes from all over the world. Over thirty international curators provided their view of art in their city by means of a 6' x 6' x 7' pavilion. DUS architects was invited to design the Amsterdam Architecture pavilion. The momumental cube shape was built entirely out of wineboxes and played with the tradition of the architecture pavilion, as this has always been a typology of architecture in its purest form, intended for sheer pleasure. Visitors were welcomed to insert a reasonable amount of money in the cardboard coin slot, buy a cup and enjoy a drink together.
