Encampment Supreme

2015
Kestle Barton, Cornwall, UK.

A temporary pavilion built to house Kestle Barton's public programme for the 2015-2017 season.

The pavilion is a further development of the Lizard Exit Plan, in which an imagined catastrophic event cuts off Cornwall's Lizard peninsula from the global economy.

The 775 sq.ft. Encampment Supreme pavilion adheres to the 'apocalyptic vernacular' - an architectural fusion of post-consumer waste products and locally found natural elements. Featuring scavenged materials including old sailcloth, building waste, reclaimed doors, sash windows, and wooden pallets, the main body of the pavilion is built on a skeleton of locally-harvested willow and sycamore, and uses a 'bender' style construction based on an ancient northern European structure common among nomadic workers.
