Spillway Pavilion Bar by Margot Krasojevic

The Pavilion Bar has been designed as part of Paris’ flood control infrastructure. It features a gorgeous, enclosed circular glass bar that rests over a bell mouth spillway which allows water to enter from its entire perimeter, directing the water throughout the design, into the spillway. This circular glass bar has been designed specifically to direct water through its ramps next to the spillway located under a moveable glass clad floor. The industrial function of the bar, combined with an ethereal monocoque shell that houses the light and reflective nature of the pavilion bar’s interior, gives an effervescent feel with the lattice spillway filtering water. It is channeled through the underground network of submerged canals then upstream to the impounded lakes and nearby reservoirs. The lightweight composite fiber monocoque canopy covers the pavilion formed as a whirlpool to channel rainwater around the surface and into the spillway beneath it. Designer : Margot Krasojevic
