Designed and built by Kawamura Ganjavian, this altered water tank turned information booth is somehow both prefab and bespoke simultaneously. A great example of what can happen with limited time and money, and a ton of creativity.
From the creators: “Infomab10 is a pavilion designed and built in record time and within record budget. It consists of an off-the-shelf 28m3 glass-fiber reinforced polyester water tank that was intervened. 100 circular perforations allow speckles of natural light to flood the space during the day, whereas during the night they project the internal light towards the outside like a constellation. Two doors allow circulation through the space.
It was installed temporarily at Paseo de Recoletos in central Madrid during February 2010 as information centre of the public art programme Madrid Abierto, and it was subsequently transported to the Matadero cultural centre.” All photos via KG.
