CityVision, in collaboration with FARM, is proud to announce a new international competition called PFFF, an architecture competition dedicated to architects, designers, students and engineers focused on the design and realization of an inflatable mobile pavilion of 50sqm that can embody the spirit of the FARM project.
The pavilion will be used many times and it will have to be easily transportable and installable in squares, parks, meeting places of different cities and FARM Cultural Camp tour’s stops. The study of the atmospheric conditions (wind, rain, heat, cold) will be very important as well as the pavilion’s internal security. The study of materials, methods of inflation and deflation, structure anchoring to the ground and openings will be critical to the success and safety of the project.
