Pestival

A six metre cube constructed in cross laminated timber, the Pestival Termite Pavilion was a hugely successful collaboration between Softroom, Freeform Engineering, Atelier One, KLH and sound artist Chris Watson, and funded by the Wellcome Trust.

The results were a beautiful temporary public space educating visitors about the unique climate control characteristics of termite architecture. A memorable experience through light and reverberating bass was created for thousands of visitors, exploring how termites control airflow and temperature in their homes.
