Pabellon en Lamina is a space which combines the provision of temporary shelter with an inducement to participate in specific acts of memory, contemplation, and philosophical speculation; as well as a place for retreat and meditation. It is related to the process of creating philosophical works, which may take as their subjects the nature of the environment in which the pavilion is itself sited. The Pavilion is made in relation to architectural form as well as to the sculptural and visual senses. In its sitting, this pavilion is deliberately positioned in a large plot of land, following the path of an existing pine tree alley.

The viewer on the inside is in constant flux according to the conditions of changing light and the position of the sun, which affects the reflection and transparency of the glass. Perception has no time spam, there is no acknowledgment of temporality, the art experience is pure. The observing subject is conscious of being part of a present, palpable, located in a specific time and reality. For the concept of this project, we sought for a higher unity between architecture and nature.
