With a total area of 150 m2, the Pavilion is the largest temporary structure on New Holland Island. It is equipped to accommodate a variety of events, including small-scale exhibitions, lectures, and educational programs. The Pavilion was designed by architect Sergey Bukin. The first event it hosted was an exhibition of work by the recipients of the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art artist grants.
From April through October, the Pavilion on New Holland Island hosts Lecture Hall, a series of educational programs, spanning various areas of interest: lectures in the social sciences, in collaboration with the Higher School of Economics in Saint Petersburg; to architecture-related offerings, in collaboration with the magazine Project Baltia; a film program; lessons in urban gardening from the organization, Dacha in the City; a series of public talks on contemporary art; and a literary club.
Lecture Hall was devised to help bring high quality educational initiatives to a wider audience. The topics for the lectures are specially selected to appeal to a broad range of ages and demographics.
