MEATS and the Master’s in graphic design of ELISAVA joint their efforts to build a summer pavilion out of 3km of timber material only in 5 days. The workshop was led by the graphic artist Anthony Burrill and the architect Eugeni Bach. One of the main inspirations for the definition of the design strategy was the pragmatic vision of the iconic designer Enzo Mari, who explores creativity out of simplicity and efficiency of the means. The workshop was designed to communicate the power of restraint, especially when time isn’t on your side, which tends to be the case in any real-world project. The students also had to deal with limited resources – working solely with pine wood slats and MDF panels – and faced graphic constraints, only using stencil fonts and a strictly white colour palette.
