Finding the French pavilion

Reconstruction #5, Augustus 9, 2015

Amongst the pavilions that were built for the Floriade 1972, one pavilion is missing. It seems that it was buried in the eighties to improve the security in the park. This activity is an attempt to excavate the French Pavilion with the help of amateur archaeologists and other enthusiasts and to think of future scenarios for this pavilion.

in collaboration with University of Amsterdam, faculty of archaeology.
