José Forjaz Arquitectos /  Mozambique MULTI-PURPOSE PAVILION EPM, MAPUTO, MOZAMBIQUE, 2010 With this pavilion the architect has carried on the tradition of using one and the same space for different functions. On the floor a variety of game courts are lined out, and this makes it first and foremost a outdoor sports hall. But with its enormous roof the primary function of the pavilion is to provide shade and thus create a place to be. There are no outside walls and the whole construction is visible. In its own way the space merges with the surroundings as an interpretation of the simplest African ‘space’ – that is, the tree. MULTI-PURPOSE 201
