The work operates in the ambiguity of the term “pavilhão” (pavilion, in Portuguese), which gives its name to the standards and flags of Brazilian samba schools, but that also means tent or architectural arrangement. In the first context, it is the ideology and tradition of associations: between the community around it there is a reverent respect, and even a certain mystique, so few are allowed to touch it. When it comes to architecture, the word can refer to temporary camps, or lighter and accessory buildings in their specific purposes. Later, the term was appropriate in the field of art facilities for the large exhibitions and representative institutions and entities, such as national pavilions in art biennials around the world.
