An architectonic contribution to the long iconographic tradition of the Jungfrau series inspired by the mountain panorama and initiated by Paul Klee, Arnold Böcklin and Ferdinand Hodler: it’s the new pavilion designed by Antonio Scarponi for the Bernese community of Steffisburg to host different open-air cultural events of the triennial local festival Art-Container.

With its 250 square meters of covered surface and its 9 meters height, the Jungfrau Pavilion is designed as a theatrical device and the structure presents itself as a lay cathedral surrounded by rapeseed fields to host daily liturgies such as concerts, speeches, gastronomic degustations and open leisure activities that celebrate the beauty of the alpine Bernese landscape and territory.

The pavilion features ad-hoc furniture while the wooden roof structure consists of an “open truss’” system that allows the suspension of a rooftop membrane that inverts the load forces and optimizes the natural structure resistance performance of the wood construction.

Finally, the pavilion is designed as a temporary structure that can be efficiently rebuilt in different contexts and host various cultural open-air events.
