NOA Water pavilion

afgelast: 23/09/2020 - 23/10/2020
Location: Semirami garden

Deze activiteiten zijn vanwege de huidige coronamaatregelen afgelast.

NOA, Nomadic Overnight Aquatecture, is een 9 meter hoog tijdelijk paviljoen dat in de Semiramistuin in Oosterflank (Prins Alexander) werd opgebouwd, op de plek die 6 meter onder het zeeniveau ligt. De pop-up ontmoetingsplek en cultuurpodium moest bezoekers uitdagen om stil te staan bij de gevolgen van klimaatverandering door middel van theatervoorstellingen, workshops en lezingen.

CBK Rotterdam droeg bij aan de realisatie van het paviljoen.

About NOA

NOA stands for 'Nomadic Overnight Aquatecture' and was designed by Studio Kortmann. The pavilion is movable, can be quickly set up and dismantled and has water as a central theme. NOA is made up of a steel scaffolding construction, with a skin of white gauze. The walls thus trap moisture from the air, which is then collected in the water container. The white gauze cloths together form one pixel cloud ofwel een grote laag zwevende wolk opgebouwd uit blokken. Je loopt dus letterlijk met je hoofd in de wolken. De grote eyecatcher is de 6 meter hoge waterval die bezoekers doen beseffen hoe hoog de zeespiegel op die plek eigenlijk is.

Een breed programma (afgelast!)

NOA is more than just a pavilion. For example, there will be workshops, lectures and an own theater performance, The fairytale of Prince Alexander, place. The Powerboat Foundation makes this performance in collaboration with journalist and writer Dore van Duivenbode, which partly takes place in the pavilion. The performance starts with an audio tour through the neighborhood, which ends at the NOA pavilion where visitors meet a number of characters from the audio tour in person. The tour is based on residents' stories about their past, their present and the possible future in the neighborhood.
