Camper Pavilion by Shigeru Ban

Camper, refusing to stick to comfortable foot wear, have dipped their toes into yet another pool. This time they turn to Japanese architect Shigeru Ban to create a pavilion in association with the Volvo Ocean race. “This circular, visually airy structure is open on all sides and characterized by its imposing colonnade of recycled paper tubes. It is designed to be assembled and dismantled easily and quickly in order to travel to marinas around the world where the yacht ports are located along the race.” Ban has worked on projects far and wide, specialising in paper based structures, he was featured in Time Magazines 21st century innovators in the field of architecture and design.
