This active multi-use pavilion by Bence Pap and Parsa Khalili took second prize in the OUE Artling ArchiPavilion Design Competition in Singapore. Designed around the principles of continuity and flexibility, the Artling Pavilion provides an adaptable space that accommodates evolving programs and ensures constant adherence to the occupants' needs.

The Artling Pavilion's configuration is based on an open platform which provides the basic space for its programmatic demands. This platform is enclosed by a modular system of walls made of prefabricated industrial materials. In the center of the gallery, a dynamic sculptural architecture piece not only acts as furniture for visitors, but also allows shifting configurations as its components can be distributed throughout the space.

When the pavilion's configuration is closed, the art viewing atmosphere is intimate, providing a comfortable and subdued environment for private showings, performances, and receptions. When the sculpture's fragments are separated via a system of movable tracks, however, the display area doubles to accommodate large art exhibitions while the fragments activate the space and maintain "privatized pockets" for other programmatic needs.

Apart from the open display and reception area, secondary zones host a dining room, champagne bar, and auction room, all of which can be reconfigured as necessary. These adaptable spaces, in tangent with the mobile sculpture, produce a space that is an art piece in itself, possessing limitless configuration possibilities to evolve with its occupants.
