Designed by Álvaro Siza Vieira, one of the prominent architects connecting the 20th and 21st century, Anyang Pavilion is the first of the architect’s works to be built in Asia. Commissioned by the 1st APAP, it is located in the geographical center of the then site, which was undergoing transformation from Anyang Amusement Park to Anyang Art Park. The architecture was also a core work of the 1st APAP’s curatorial concept, solely grouped under the title “Feast.” Conceived to blend in with the surrounding environment of the park, it features a unique and atypical structure whereby visitors may experience differently depending on their standing point.
A pavilion is at once an open building for enjoying nature and a temporary architecture for public events and exhibitions. The 4th APAP took advantage of the structure’s openness and re-programmed Anyang Pavilion to a site where visitors experience the space more freely and meet public art on a more intimate level. The new programs for Anyang Pavilion especially focus on converting the resources of APAP, accumulated for almost ten years, into different kinds of experiences.
The new interior space design was selected through an invited competition, *The Spatialization of Programs*, with the participation of both specialists and the public. Timeworn facilities underwent extensive repairs, while two outdoor sculptures commissioned by the 2nd APAP, *Bunker—M. Bakhtin* and *I Am Thinking of You*, were relocated from Central Park in Pyeongchon to the surrounding of the pavilion. The name was also changed from the “Álvaro Siza Hall” to “Anyang Pavilion” in light of the intention and specificities of the building. The new Anyang Pavilion re-opened its doors to the public on October 26th, 2013.
Housed in Anyang Pavilion are the 4th APAP’s initiatives and APAP’s infrastructural projects, Park Library, Making Lab, Project Archive and APAP Tours. The programs hosted at Anyang Pavilion provide various channels and occasions for the public to meet and experience public art. Anyang Pavilion will stay open to public after the finale of the 4th APAP, serving as a continuous hub of APAP.
