The essence of the project is to allow people to experience limits. The easiest way to think about it is on a line. Time is a difficult boundary to understand. A boundary that we can not step back from. By using waste we make a ‘statement’ that waste does not exist. Everything can always have a function again. A border can have many meanings and be a different experience for everyone. The simplest way to define a boundary is like a line that divides two different areas. It becomes more complex to consider time as a boundary.
Time forms boundaries during life, which form the transitions to new phases. Phases that we are confronted with every day and which we can not avoid. The pavilion is therefore shaped like an hourglass. In the middle a curtain is formed of water, the source of life. This natural boundary at the turning point of time symbolizes the dual nature of events in life. By re-using old tylene tubes as materialisation, the basic concept of the border is embraced as a simple line in this concept.
