Participants from the fields of art, architecture, music, film, philosophy and technology have been invited to devise new, site-specific live works for the 2016 Pavilion, designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG).

In these multidisciplinary encounters with the structure, the Park Nights series proposes compelling, new ways to encounter architecture. This year, the Park Nights series focuses on the agency and performative potentials embedded in the live encounter, asking the question – How to do things with time-based art forms?
