For Montpellier’s FAV 2013, the pavilion was realized by an architect from Languedoc Roussillon’s region, Robin Juzon who graduated from the Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Architecture of Montpellier.
The pavilion of simple geometric shape, was achieved with the aid of wooden panels. With the massive and opaque origin, the panels are similar to thin sheets of wood embedded into each other. Thus, the pavilion proved sometimes transparent and sometimes opaque depending on the angle preferred by the visitor.
The vault of the upper part meets the forms of the old chapel which presently include «La Chambre de Commerce et de l’Industrie» in the old city center of Montpellier. This facility has been designed according to its primary function, which is the home and the beginning to visiting the FAV. The aim was to create a signal element in the path of the visitor.
