The Pavilion marked a new milestone in the history of Walk&Talk, creating an open and public house for the festival’s program, a symbol of the project's autonomy, maturity and capacity for innovation as a space of creation and experimentation in the various artistic fields.
The receptivity to the first Pavilion was proven by the way it involved and crossed different audiences, attracted by an inviting, open and activated space with an intense two-week program that included concerts, talks, parties and performances. The Pavilion was the "meeting point" and "starting point" of the activities of Walk&Talk 2018, revived the São João Square and defined a new centrality in the city of Ponta Delgada. Alongside an open invitation to the public, the Pavilion created a confluence space between artists, organizers and visitors, since it brought together various areas essential to the dynamics and management of the festival: canteen, bar, auditorium, stage.
Anda & Fala - Cultural Association, responsible for Walk&Talk - Arts Festival, promotes this Architecture Competition with the purpose of selecting a partner responsible for designing the project for the new W&T Pavilion, a temporary structure that will be built at Largo de São João in Ponta Delgada (São Miguel) and presented in the context of the tenth edition of the event, which takes place from July 9 to 19, 2020. The competition has supported by Cryptomeria dos Açores and the Lisbon Architecture Triennale.
