The Cruising Pavilion explores the contemporary architectural narratives related to LGBTQAI cruising practices. Cruising generally describes the hunt for sexual encounters between homosexual men in public spaces such as parks, toilets, and parking lots or in dedicated locations such as gay bathhouses and sex clubs. The Cruising Pavilion not only considers cruising as an instrumental site of subversion of the hetero-normative production of space itself but also as a highly unstable region that forces to rethink the core understanding of architecture.
