Text description provided by the architects. It is a great challenge in an architectural sense, a great question whether contemporary architecture can be present in a village where the largest architectural intervention of the past 100 years has been some change of windows and doors; where the idea of the most modern materials is the red and blue metal rooftops and the idea of „form” remains the archetypical shape of the house. What tools does contemporary architecture have in such a conservative village sticking so much to traditions? Where could we start? Which values are we reflecting on, trying to save them from the current decay that will obviously disappeare soon and forever without intervention? How can something fit into this environment having a function that has never been seen there before, something that has no ancestors, no past, no natural location in the village? Being in connection with the environment is not a cliché here coming from the vibes of „genius loci” creating nice forms and transcendent content,it is rather a very practical need that could secure the long-lasting future of the pavilion: having connection is means of survival here. In a situation where the house is left alone for 11 months of the year (the 12th one being the time of the excavation) in the cornfield by the village the only chance for survivor is to have owner.
And there can be owner only if locals become owners. If locals can relate to the small constructions by their village, if they are able to accept them, and the community is able to look at them as its own and feel responsibility for them – in this case the pavilions can last the time they were constructed for. In any other case their inevitable future is decay and destruction. Considering these having connection is not only a purpose-it's the only chance for the existance of the pavilions.
