Ephemeral architecture in Granada

The notion of ephemeral is inseparable from architecture throughout history, either because they were time-limited projects such as events or a fair or because the materials used in those constructions were of poor quality, such as wood, adobe or cardboard, and although initially they were not intended to last a short time, the truth is that they did not enjoy a long life.

Ephemeral architecture is that which responds to the needs of a specific moment, without the need to remain in time. This temporality allows the projects to have more freedom in the design, having the ability to alter the surrounding space in a timely manner. In many cases they are built with temporary structures, which disappear due to the expiration of their materials or the end of the need to maintain them once the event is over.

Some examples of ephemeral architecture are:

  • Temporary exhibitions or stands at trade fairs.
  • Ephemeral stores or Pop up stores.
  • Temporary adaptations of spaces for other uses.
  • Dismountable pieces located in “borrowed” spaces.
  • Scenography for an event (parades, presentation of a product, a company, etc).
  • Art, lighting and sound installations.
