Selgascano’s floating pavilion for the Bruges Triennial, opening this week.
Next to the Coupure, the installation of the Spanish architectural firm selgascano catches the eye. The organic structure with pink, orange and yellow transparent walls lends colour to the water and forms an ideal spot to take a rest. Although the canal is still navigable today and forms a link between the Ringvaart (outer canal system) and the city centre, the sluice gates here are for the most part kept closed. This floating pavilion will be an ideal place for adults and children to wade in or venture a splash in the canals.
