Temporary structures come in all shapes and forms. Standard structures can look incredible in the right context or abstract structures can create wow moments for event attendees. Rory Sloan, Production Director at London agency AVANTGARDE explores differing types of temporary structures. How particular types of structures are suited to particular outdoor sites is an important area to understand in terms of ground levels, differing weather conditions and access to the site; as well as the type of events and event objectives.
