An exhibition pavilion by Formforge which started with the idea of maximum volume utilization in a very limited available space.
The parametric shell is defined by its volumetric boundaries which maintains a visual continuity within. Starting from a simple cubical mass, the form is carved through step by step iterations, the result is a tubular shell that is further elaborated by a series of 90 ribbed wooden structural members connected by 150 unique steel components.
The cost efficiency is achieved by optimizing the joinery to minimize the material wastage. The entire 8m x3m x 3m structure is fabricated with just 60 sq.mt. of birch plywood board, designed and fabricated in a way that it can be assembled multiple times, in quick succession.
The final layer comes in the form of 900 leaf like fins that clips to the wooden slices suggesting a control over the visual transparency. With a bit of precision and a wholesome spirit of curiosity this pavilion redefines the digital design context, a transient enclosure experimenting with material, structure & concepts.
