The pavilion will also house a café and a small shop. Archilab Forum at the Pavilion
Archilab is a series of workshops, panel discussions and open forums for exchange of ideas on topical themes related to sustainability and architecture. The events are designed to introduce these topics to the general public in an easily approachable form, while also providing professional practitioners with a round table for exchanging views and opinions. Certain discussions will be reserved for topics related to the Shorelines and Change exhibitions.
