Cannes , France
The BBC Pavilion, a seminal project that was in development for almost two years, is a large-scale organic structure located on the beach front in Cannes. The building fuses an iconic sculptural aesthetic with highly innovative architectural functionality.
The ‘skin’ of the structure is foremost a mechanism for controlling the visual transparency of the building, but the sculptural composition of thousands of recyclable aluminium ‘petals’ results in an object of inherent natural beauty.
The undulating front of the building opens up during the day in a unique and complex mechanical concertina, exposing visitors to open views of the Mediterranean whilst referencing the performative nature of BBC Studios output.
GMS’ organic exterior is complimented by a sleek and finely crafted interior scheme designed by Universal Design Studio to create a unique and enhanced experience of the building for its many visitors.
The project was led by Cheerful Twentyfirst and Christine Losecaat and was built by York-based Stageone in a mere 6 day install.
