French graphic designer, Ruedi Baur, had a plan to hold three exhibitions in three countries; Iran, Netherlands, and Argentina. His idea was to represent these exhibitions as nomadic camps in three continents. Because his first exhibition was taking place in Iran, we came up with designing a portable Iranian tent for Ruedi so that he could be able to take it to his other exhibitions in Europe and South America.
We found a lot of potentials in the structure of Turkmen Yurts. With some changes in its modular design, we managed to build a metal pavilion quite similar to the original Yurt. The structure was placed at the Tehran Contemporary Art Museum during Ruedi Baur’s exhibition.
