 Discover a bionic research pavilion, which is a chance for us to explore architecture through a unique design calculation.
This flag is composed of modular supply facilities.
Inspiration for temporary exhibition pavilion was sand and sea urchins.
Outer frame is also composed of a plywood sea sand, of a polygonal plate module, which are connected to the edges of the geometrical projections.

  This system allows the sand building grout and tiles have a high load bearing capacity.
The researchers decided to use the aforementioned similarities as a basis for their design.
Creator project in collaboration with students from the University, have jointly developed a computational model of modular elements resulting polygonal particular this work.

 Three plates meet at the edges of a single point to allow proper function of the normal force, shear, and bending.
This geometry allows light plywood structure to function easily as a large building.
In fact, the entire pavilion is constructed from sheets of plywood 6.5 mm and is so easy, that had to be set down in the ground, to prevent its destruction.

 Robotic manufacturing system created by University students, was to cut the plates in a total of 850 different geometric components.
Pavilion was assembled in a public market between universities and buildings in Stuttgart.

 It is composed of two distinct spatial entities, one that is a big hole exposures vast interior spaces with a porous inner layer and a narrow interstitial space between the two layers, which is a constructive logic of the double-layer case.
Modular bionic pavilion was in the spotlight as architectural research and teaching at the university and will help develop global research bionic structures.
