The Wooden Parliament is an immersive crater, an interiorised space open to the sky, where people can enter to eat, talk, read or just get lost for a while. The seats are arranged in horizontal surfaces, forming inclined stands, facing each other in close proximity, facilitating conversations.

The Wooden Parliament was an open air pavilion 7m in height made of supporting wooden structures with internal seats arranged horizontally forming inclined stands facing each other. A series of blown up wooden knots cover the pavilion following the precise geometry of the wooden structure.It was conceived as a displacement of a private interior in a public space: an immersive room wrapped with an ornamented dress. The pavilion was used as a platform for a series of events organised by MoA throughout the month of June, further encouraging the public’s engagement and participation with architecture.
