REFUGE TONNEAU 21 | pavillon | HEAD – Genève | 2021

REFUGE TONNEAU 21 was developed as a tribute to the iconic Refuge Tonneau by Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret from 1938. The pavilion serves as a place to meet on the school campus. Central stairs are placed inside a colourful interior with a playful pattern of circular windows. Solar panels on the roof power a ceiling light installation displaying the names Charlotte and Pierre. The installation was first shown at the OPEN HOUSE exhibition in Genthod/ Geneva in 2021.
