Circular pavilions in Mechelen inaugurated
Combining reclaimed glass partition walls within a scaffolding structure? Why not! On the Kardinaal Mercierplein in Mechelen, two temporary pavilions are now open to the public. The evoke the memory of past buildings, demolished to widen the street for car traffic. For the coming nine months, the pavilions invite residents to think about what this space could mean for their city in the future. The structures, already consisting mostly of reclaimed materials, can be completely dismantled afterwards for further reuse.
