Project for the academy of arts: Scale model made as a conclusion to the research on the pavilion
Philips Pavilion by the architect Le Corbusier World's Fair Brussel,
 1958.
In collaboration with Jessica de Graaf

Le Corbusier designed the Philips Pavilion for the World’s Fair in Brussels in 1958. This is his only building for a Dutch client. The unconventional pavilion was the setting for the experimental performance Le poème électronique. Using film, light, colour, space and music, and seen by one and a half million visitors, this event is regarded as the first multimedia performance.

After its demolition in 1959, the pavilion became an icon of the twentieth century.
