Aberdeen’s Castlegate to welcome temporary mirrored pavilion
Aberdeen’s Castlegate is to be the setting for a temporary mirrored pavilion, focal point for twin cultural festivals taking place in April, with construction work now getting underway.

Designed by a group of final year architecture students from Robert Gordon University the pavilion will provide a home for both the Look Again Visual Art and Design Festival and the Festival of Architecture 2016.

Catherine McKeown, president of Aberdeen Society of Architects said: “The month-long Festival of Architecture will give visitors and residents a chance to discover hidden treasures and be reminded of their favourite city centre architecture. As well as a series of lectures by leading architects, a model city event and walk and talk events, there will be a fantastic programme of films being run at the Belmont Cinema.”

Conceived by student Lucy Fisher the five by seven metre installation will take less than a week to build and will house 30 people when complete, as well as serving as a venue for workshops and pop-up showcases.
