This pavilion, located in Salobreña (Granada), does not have a specific use but it is carefully designed to fit into its surrounding landscape in a specific way.

Jesús Torres of García architects, who is Spanish, but who is currently living in Paris, was inspired by Oscar Niemeyer’s approach to building in harmony with nature.

On one side the building is clad with timber slats, whilst on the other it is apparently clad in landscape and sky. Of course this is just the reflection of its surroundings in the mirrored glass, but it was the intention to produce this illusion. It works in part at least, because of the minimal detailing to the glazing.

Inside the pavilion is open and flexible providing the perfect environment for exhibitions and other small scale events.

The building is very powerful in its own modest way.

Spanish Pavilion Design presents a modern architecture with display a splurge color exterior and colorful interior. This pavilion display at the Floriade 2012 in Venlo, Netherlands which is a wonderful architecture design from designer Pulgon Diseño.

Made of recycled materials like fruit boxes, planks and some rest of the building materials, this pavilion brought go-green concept. Cradle to Cradle is the idea which the designer believes that every originate smaterial from nature must finish up as a natural part of it as well. And in the process Pulgon Diseño has created a green structure that is visually distinctive and strikingly vivid from materials that have mostly been discarded as waste.

Spanish Pavilion design is a example of a sustainable design that is both flowing in its appearance and fully functional. The structure was designed to highlight the importance of organic products and how various things and materials in nature can be used and reused for construction. An amalgamation of multitude of materials and colors, the Spanish Pavilion seems like a natural structure that just sprung out of the ground and has a very “natural” feel to it.

The Endesa Pavilion, in Barcelona, is an experimental project from the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia which explores how technology can create architectures that are adaptive to particular environments, and particular conditions.

01 elevation endessa1 300x199 - Endesa Pavilion, Smart City Expo, Barcelona, SpainThe building starts with a simple premiss of a timber box with a grid façade on which modular components can be mounted. From an analysis of the building orientation and latitude, maps of insolation density can be created which allows façade components to be generated whose forms respond to the precise conditions expected at that point on the building. Moving across the façade each component will be different as its form is optimised to best meet the parameters to which it must respond. In this case that means providing shade and generating electricity from PV cells.

The complexity and variety of components generated is not an issue in terms of manufacture or assembly. Each component is CNC cut according to the shape sent to it from the CAD file meaning that infinite variety is possible at virtually no additional cost. Assembly issues are also resolved within the software so that when the components come to site they are pre-drilled and slotted and can be assembled like flat pack furniture. On this building it meant the whole thing could be assembled in a month.
