“This construction started out out as challenge to materialize ideas and investigation produced inside of CEAAD 2012/2013, all associated with expanded cork agglomerate.” say the students. “These concepts are: the possibility to span vaults with cork alone, a compound translucent cork materials, and a program for radiation and acoustic optimization. All these concepts ought to be shown inside the pavillion in a symbiotic relation formalized by the continuous and metamorphic form.”

“Architectonic space lies inside an inter-relation in between inner and outer room, selling dynamic fluxes and circulation all close to the construction. The outdoors offers circulation and rest locations, in which folks can relax in benches or wavy types. The within is a tunnel like room that has a constant bench and an exhibition room, in which men and women can uncover shelter from the trade honest harsh noise and lights. All this was formalized as a form that grows from the floor making a smooth transition in between the floor and vaulted roof.”

“Cork traits had been a major driving force to the room conception. The floor and walls are smooth and soft, and the smell is extremely certain. Inside the room one particular has the feeling of currently being inside yet another setting, such is the result of shifting light, sound, smell and touch. The grass in the exterior – exhibiting the chance of using cork on living roofs – creates a symbiosis of living plants and cork bark.”
