A propos du Pop-up


The why of the how is important

Did the Citadel choose Le Pavillon, or did Le Pavillon set its sights on the Citadel? 


Before landing on the Namur soil, Le Pavillon was the symbol of Belgium at the universal exhibition in Milan. This creation by Patrick Genard, awarded for its eco-design, boldly complements the landscape of the Citadel. 


Today, perched on its promontory - the Citadelle -, Le Pavillon wants to be the totem of a digital transformation.

Enabling anyone and everyone to take on the challenges of our time through initiation, discovery, and experimentation. 


So, yes, as others would say, Le Pavillon has punch. And that's good because it has a lot of (surprising) things to say.  

Curiosity is a nice flaw.

Curious and bold: that's the configuration style of Le Pavillon. Made of wood, nails, and metal on the outside, from within, Le Pavillon is built as a joyful organic creature, constantly changing. It's an evolution that is reminiscent of the world, built from trials and errors.

It sometimes projects divergent points of view onto the world, sometimes disturbing, but never — fingers crossed — annoying. 
To satisfy the technological appetite of its visitors, Le Pavillon offers a menu of varied pleasures, cleverly spiced and a touch daring.
