Located on a sloping terrain, surrounded by forest, this pavilion redesigned the topography so that the volume of the building blends.
While defining a cantilevered structure that levitates on the ground. The entry area is defined by means of two levels with major showrooms.
Treated as a continuation of the exterior , the covered square set up a transitional space that organizes the flows, facilities houses and allows visual interaction with the basement room, located 4.5 meters below ground. By contrast, other place of exhibition pavilion is a regular, closed on the upper level defined by the volume of steel cut.
This formal element dominant , built with a steel structure that allows maximum flexibility in interior spaces, features a formal subtle distortions that allow the creation of linear skylights in the main walls.
