Concrete box is Portugese performance centre

Kairos-Pavilion-by-Joao-Quintela-and-Tim-Simon_1sq

A bleak-looking box-shaped concrete pavilion in Lisbon, Portugal, with a hidden courtyard which will host events and exhibitions is a central feature of the  city’s Architecture Triennale, which starts next month.

Designed by Portuguese architect João Quintela and German architect Tim Simon, the Kairos Pavilion is a permanent structure built from prefabricated concrete blocks that slot together without any need for adhesives.

The highest points of the walkway which runs through the structure  offer views down into the centre of the pavilion, where a square courtyard will act as a stage for exhibitions, speakers or musical performances.
