Marc Fornes of THEVERYMANY has designed the nonLin/Lin Pavilion as part of the FRAC Centre's permanent collection.  The pavilion is a prototype that engages in a series of architectural experiments known as text-based morphologies.  The result is a computer-generated coral-like design that is 10 meters long, 4.5 meters high, and assembled from 27 components.  Dotted with over 155,000 asterisk-shaped perforations, the self-supporting aluminum structure is stable enough for visitors to climb on.  The product of countless hours of research on the structural elements of environments, the pavilion engages basic notions of limitation, filtration, and spatial depth.  The nonLin/Lin Pavilion is a precise experiment toward constructability in a very real economical and cultural context.
