What is a Design POP pavilion?
A Design POP pavilion is a temporary structure designed and created by an Architect or Designer. These different collaborations are dotted around Cork city.
The Architects/designer is challenged to design a structure that captures and represents the Design POP themes of either Urban Regeneration or Creative Community.
ACTIVATION TIMES: Activation times are the times when something is happening in/at the pavilion. All pavilions are open during opening hours with a specific activity happening at the activation times.

About the pavilion
Penrose Dock - Wilson Architecture For 2023’s Design Popup Cork, Wilson Architecture has designed a temporary architectural pavilion to provide a place to gather, to talk, and to reconnect.
The design incorporates simple geometric shapes intertwined by a horizontal plane, inspired by the logo of our Popup partner Naturally Nourished café, to provide a ‘long table’ installation a meeting point for outdoor dining, and gathering, and an event space for play and relaxation.
Located at Penrose Dock, the Popup pavilion, with its vibrant colour and bold forms, creates a temporary reimagining of the public space within the formal architectural setting and provides an opportunity to re-establish the importance of communal gathering, particularly centred around a food experience.
