House or Ventilation Duct: Antepavilion 2017
Architect: PUP Architects (Theo Molloy, Chloë Leen und Steve Wilkinson)
Location: London (GB)
The small house, which is clad with silver shingles of Tetra Pak, is sculptural yet functional at the same time. Moreover, the pavilion has engendered a discussion about the occupancy of city rooftops. The trick of disguising additional living space as a ventilation device could become a model for the future. After all, more living space is needed in London.
Ellis Woodman is director of the Architecture Foundation, which organized the competition. He hopes that the Antepavilion competition will develop into a meaningful architecture event and act as a springboard for the up-and-coming generation of architects.
