More photos about the pavilion and description from Anton and Débora after the break:
The pavilion brings together the work of seven teams of active Spanish architects who strongly defend their vocation for innovation, and who have built personal worlds outside styles and fashions, not without professional risk.
Hamar’s Kommune decided to take a pioneer approach to the construction of the new Stortorget Square, now just a parking lot. In an effort to bring democracy back to public spaces, citizens are invited to join the free on-site workshops that will take place from September to November, to question themselves about their city and work together to improve it. The workshops follow a horizontal and participative methodology, led by Ecosistema Urbano that will determine Stortorget’s new configuration, which is known as Dreamhamar.

Spanish architects Lluis Sabadell Artiga + Ecosistema Urbano shared with us their project ONETHOUSANDSQUARE, winner of the Stortorget Main Square Competition in Hamar, Norway. More images and architect’s description after the break.
