On 30 October 2019, the XX Pavilion organised by FCI's Department of Architecture will officially open.

The XX Pavilion expands on the tradition of FCI Department of Architecture bamboo pavilions. With a larger scale and complex programme, it sets an inhabitable temporary space that invites participation.

This ephemeral structure celebrates the symbiosis between the craftsmanship of Macao’s bamboo scaffolders and the inventiveness and digital design skills of USJ fifth-year architecture students. Inspired by the vernacular bamboo knot technique, it features a double-cross layout. This design simultaneously commemorates the XX anniversary of Macao SAR and initiates the celebrations of the X anniversary of the USJ Architecture Programme.

Selected to be part of the Art Macau, the XX Pavilion is open for activities by the USJ and broader local community. Located at the entrance courtyard of USJ Ilha Verde Campus, it stands as an invitation for cross-disciplinary collaboration, hosting exhibitions, lectures, workshops and other events until December.
