Communication is a link to social interaction between people. The presence of virtual communication has changed the pattern of information transmission in one direction. Despite all forms of virtual communication, the public still needs an accessible space to reconnect to two-way social interactions.

Based on this context, en-route-architecture responded to the phenomenon by creating a pavilion as a physical platform for two-way social interaction. This temporary structure is built to accommodate various events, and activities, and can also function as an information exchange room. The blue pavilion built by en-route architecture is known as the "Mobile Podium."

The Mobile Podium located in Athens, Greece, is designed with the main structure consisting of two diagonally shaped blue containers and supported by an iron structure installed to frame the cantilever on the podium. Therefore, Visually, the Mobile Podium has a shape like a bird's beak from a gaping lego.

At the front of the podium, en-route-architecture designed a multi-story seat as a public meeting room. Meanwhile, the back of the Mobile Podium functions as an information room about certain programs as needed in the event being held. In addition, the cantilever roof function is intended to perfect the shape of the Mobile Podium while protecting visitors from sunlight.

As a temporary architecture, en-route-architecture designed the Mobile Podium with a temporary structure because it only provides interior space when needed and as a place for providing two-way social interaction which eventually becomes an open auditorium. The mobile podium is designed to be easily disassembled and reassembled in any location.
