Bex & Arts Sculpture Triennial, June 6 - Oct 15, 2017

Parc de Szilassy, Route du Signal, 1880 Bex, VD


Montalba Architects presents a pavilion for Bex & Arts 2017, a collaborative project at the crossroads of art, architecture and new technologies.

The Bex & Arts sculpture triennial was started more than 25 years ago. Original works of art are displayed in a beautiful park that offers views towards the Léman landscape and the Alps.

David Montalba, who has known this event since his childhood initiated a temporary pavilion idea for the 2017 exhibition.

The exhibition pavilion, about 40 square meters in size, integrates the presentation to the public of the models of the works realized by the invited artists as well as a FabLab. There is also a small library section where books from the artists are on display, which will allow the exhibition to further impact each and every visitor.

The theme of the energy that connects the works presented in this triennial guided the design of the building. The wooden structure is lightweight and removable so that it can be reused for future
events. The choice of materials, naturally Swiss, and the local constructive know-how have guided the technical and implementation resolutions.

The pavilion is an important step in the visit to the park. It offers visitors the resources and information necessary for the discovery of artists and the understanding of the works.

The FabLab installed in it, and led by a team of specialists, will be a place of exchange and sharing of technology.

To help us carry out this artistic and cultural project, we are looking for sponsors and patrons. Such support will contribute to the building of the pavilion, to further radiate this special event, which profoundly impacts the landscape of Swiss art and the natural landscape.
