Zurich’s Manifesta 11: the Pavilion of Reflections
The floating wooden platform known as the Pavilion of Reflections was a was a hub of activity during our stay in Zurich. It was part of Manifesta 11, a 100 day biennial celebration that explores social changes in the European cultural landscape. Artistically and intellectually liberal Zurich was a perfect choice as host city in 2016.
This urban island was the product of a competition among architecture students. It was designed to be a gathering place with artwork and open-air swimming by day and films by night.
