Therefore with the design of this temporary house, Search Architects Amsterdam went back to the basics: “What are our minimum needs in order to enjoy a maximum quality of life?”

On May 29 the pavilion opened its doors to the public. The innovative steel construction intentionally refers to the originally most used and minimal construction in the world; the Iglo, Yurt, Rondavel or Tukul; the often traditional nomadic dwelling.
