David Chipperfield and Antony Gormley’s Swedish art pavilion will open on Saturday 

David Chipperfield and Antony Gormley’s design for the 2008 pavilion for Kivik Art Centre in southeast Sweden will open on Saturday. The pavilion was constructed in only two months and is a sculpture entirely in concrete. Formed of three interlocked 100 cubic metre volumes: ‘The Cave’, ‘The Stage’ and ‘The Tower’ – the pavilion offers three different ways of experiencing nature and landscapes around Kivik.

The Cave, a solid, dormant space in the base of the sculpture is designed to offer the enclosed feeling of being in the dark forest where one can rest on a wall-fixed bench. Stairs then take the visitor up to the first floor,The Stage, a horizontal volume open to the landscape, where one looks out but is also exposed. The third volume, The Tower, takes the visitor up spiral stairs to a platform almost 18 metres above the ground to reveal a spectacular view over the trees towards the Baltic Sea.

Kivik Pavilions is a project that combines architecture with art and design. Fundamental are issues of environmental solutions, a symbiosis of the landscape and the pavilion, and corporate partnership with industries in the region. The 2007 pavilion, called ‘Mother Ship’, was designed by Norwegian architects Snohetta, in conjunction with the photographer Tom Sandberg.

The pavilion will be open to the public from 19 July – 28 September 2008.
