This week, Museum Gardens became the host to the annual Triumph Pavilion, this year focusing on the concept of "energy." Five Line Projects' aptly titled "Energy Pavilion" takes a multi-faceted approach to the theme, addressing social sustainability, movement and the power of community. The pavilion presents a playful meeting place, designed to explore the impact of a single positive action on its surroundings.

ArchTriumph run an annual, open call competition in order to offer an alternative stream of expression to the architectural profession. They search for innovative, experimental and engaging projects which have the power to benefit society. Five Line Projects is comprised of multiple disciplines, and their enthusiasm and lateral thinking lead them to win this years' entry. The London-based office's selection makes them the youngest winners in the competition's history.

The pavilion is formed by a forest of stainless steel rods, stacked with mills reminiscent of a children's pinwheel. By spinning a singular wheel, an individual will set into motion the movement of the adjacent wheels, creating a rippling effect through the forest. This acts as metaphor for the "collective energy of community," as one action is seen to set off a chain reaction. It also creates a kinetic playground of moving objects, energetic in its own right.

The design focuses on user engagement, and the forest becomes a place where inclusion and accessibility reign supreme. Able to be inhabited by multiple users at once, the pavilion encourages playful interaction between people of all ages and denominations. The prominent site is overlooked by the V&A's Museum of Childhood, and is attracting architects, designers, museum visitors and the general public.

The pavilion, engineered by Arup, covers 64 square meters and is entirely self-supporting. It is predominantly constructed from bamboo, a sustainable material choice, and also uses stainless steel rods, timber, CLT panels and solid aluminium cladding.
