Created during the Bat-Yam International Biennale of landscape urbanism in Israël, the Cans Pavilion utilized that most under-utilized of spaces: an unoccupied lot slated for future construction/development. An excerpt from their description:

The combination of “hospitality” and “public space” implies an inner tension. How can people identify with public space and relate to it as if it were their own living rooms?

We approach this question by fostering the participation of residents and visitors in the shaping of their environment, thus leaving their mark and presence on the space.
