Taking shelter in Nottingham city centre
Architecture students from The University of Nottingham have constructed their pavilion built from shipping pallets in Market Square, Nottingham. The creative and sustainable way of helping us shelter from the elements is the work of 2nd year students in the Department of Architecture and Built Environment.
Originally built for this year’s Ecobuild Exhibition – the world’s biggest event for sustainable design, construction and the built environment – the pavilion has been transported to Nottingham’s Market Square in preparation for tomorrow’s Light Night event.
‘A Fleeting Retreat’ is a space where visitors can relax, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Try it yourself!
