Designed by Mamou Mani Architects in collaboration with Arup, the temporary structure (The Altostrata – Therme Pavilion) is 3D-printed from biodegradable sugar-based PLA by FabPub, a joint venture between Mamou-Mani and Therme Group.
Located in Piaţa Albert Huet, The pavilion celebrates international, multi-disciplinary collaboration, and the pursuit of sophisticated, sustainable urban design. It will host panel discussions and an exhibition featuring the work of the three organizations about the city of Sibiu.
The Altostrata – Therme Pavilion serves as a venue for the Sibiu International Theatre Festival and the Therme Forum for Theatre and Architecture. It fosters an ongoing exchange of ideas among arts and design experts from around the globe, delving into the interdependent connection between the Performing Arts and architectural design.
This venture involves a partnership between the Sibiu International Theatre Festival, Therme Group, and Arup. The Forum has successfully united over 70 speakers from 21 different nations.
