The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act introduced the slogan “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” forty years ago. This proposal replaces the first stipulation of the mantra, reduce, with repose, which acts as a semiotic device and serves a conceptual function, being both instrumental and motivational. Repose is a basic property of materiality and an intrinsic form-finding device; it also serves as a call to action and the very human act underlying the pavilion’s purpose. There is a balance and order in the natural world that humanity has long tested, and today we are evermore at its inflection point. Repose Pavilion seeks to expose this instability and derive a language that informs, directs, and challenges architectural notions.
