How do narratives shape our understanding of space?
How does our imagination?
How do we remember spaces and architecture?

Alex will use the pavilion to explore our personal relations to space
and architecture. This is to happen within sound pieces he will produce per day, based on narratives and voices of people interviewed on that day - so each performance will be unique. During the day, the pavilion becomes an open studio and is welcoming everybody who would like to get interviewed and contribute to the piece.

The pavilion is to become a soundspace in which the visitors find themselves confronted with an ascent of sounds and space related narrative.
