This is a Diamond Pavilion to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee!
The Diamond Pavilion is based upon the five Cs' inherent to a diamond.
The Diamond PavilionTM embraces the legacy of Queen Elizabeth 2's
diamond jubilee year through its unique, cut diamond form. It is the crown
jewel that enhances a sense of both place and occasion in
Winchester's events calendar.
The Diamond PavilionTM sits comfortably within the historic fabric of
Winchester. The facetted transparency of the pavilion reflects yet also permits
views through to the city's heritage.
The form of the Diamond PavilionTM form captures existing monuments,
statues, trees, park benches and fountains as if they were theatrical props.
Like Winchester cathedral, it sits on a timber base.
The Diamond PavilionTM is a responsive space that can change to according
to the event: it can change from open to close, can change in colour, can
change in location: the Winchester hat fair, the Grange
Park Opera, the film festival.
The Diamond PavilionTM is an inflatable structure that is quick to (under 60
minutes) and its compact volume means it is easy to relocate.
