The 'TT Pavilion' created from Audi parts goes on show in Miami
Recycling done right
The creative piece was designed by Konstantin Grcic, who found inspiration from French architect Jean Prouvé – the 1950's talent who used to produce prefabricated houses with a particular focus on easy and quick assemblage. His influence is evident in the pavilion's design, which consists of wood and aluminum components that rest on small pillars.
Grcic spoke about his experiences and how he takes inspiration from Audi, "For me, the TT is a car that you drive from the city out into the countryside," adding, "I respond to this experience with a pavilion concept that stands as a point of destination at a remote site. Cars are industrially produced, mobile pieces of architecture. They not only offer protection but also are perfectly equipped functional spaces for working, communicating, eating and relaxing."
The installation is on show at Design Miami/Basel until June 22.
