UNStudio’s Youturn Pavilion is one of six ‘terreiros’ created for the 29th Art Biennale in Sao Paulo, Brazil 2010. Located at the heart of the biennale, the pavilion operates primarily as a venue. Programmatically the pavilion invites the public to meet, orientate and observe. It provokes interaction between both participants and visitors to the biennale, creating a place for display, discussion, and debate.
The UNStudio Pavilion places itself between artwork, installation and architecture. The Youturn Pavilion forms the ‘I am the street’ terreiro, one of six conceptual groupings of integrated curatorial spaces at the biennale. Events which occur within the space can range from intimate discussions to large group presentations.
