Description
PFFF is an architecture competition dedicated to architects, designers, students and engeneers focused on the design and realization of an inflatable pavilion that can embody the spirit of the FARM project.
This international competition has two goals:
1. Stimulating the research on new materials and new technologies for inflatable and temporary buildings.
2. Encouraging the designers’ creativity.
The inflatable mobile pavilion project will have a maximum size of 50 square meters.
The pavilion will be used many times and it will have to be easily transportable and installable in squares, parks, meeting places of different cities and FARM Cultural Camp tour’s stops.
The study of the atmospheric conditions (wind, rain, heat, cold) will be very important as well as the pavilion’s internal security.
The study of materials, methods of inflation and deflation, structure anchoring to the ground and openings will be critical to the success and safety of the project.
