Celebration of the Beer Crate

beercratepavillion2a-thumb-550xauto-48323 Thanks to the reader who sent this to me.

Tonight we celebrate the architecture of the ready-to-hand. This, ladies and gentleman (yes, I know my readership consists of one gentleman and umpteen barbarians) is a Celebration of the Beer Crate—a pavilion in the shadow of The Atomium (the then futuristic centre-piece of the 1960 Brussels World Fair) built by Stella Artois Brewery to … to … well, just because they can, that’s why.

The pavilion was designed by architects Shin Bogdan Hagiwara, Thierry Decuypere, and Jorn Aram Bihain to be a temporary structure, and after disassembly the crates will return to carting around bottles of Stella Artois.”
