The pavilion consists of 20 triangular modules. The components are all different but share the same formal, constructive and material logic.
Parametric design allows us the possibility of working with geometric complexity and variability. At the same time, the mathematical logic that organizes such variability allows, with digital fabrication tools, to share prefabrication strategies and accelerate communication processes (machine design) and production and construction processes.
The algorithm (the entire pavilion is a script) was designed in 2 months, prefabricated in 5 days and assembled in 4.
02 PASSIVE CLIMATE STRATEGIES:
The dome pursues to render the surrounding thermodynamic and climate processes. The initial geometry (a regular icosahedron) is first deformed and adapted seeking to minimize the incident solar radiation in the summer and to maximize it in winter.
The skin bulges or balloons outward, more typical of sailing geometries, to accelerate wind speeds (vernoulli) and facilitate the use of cross ventilation. The orientations of the north-south openings follow the prevailing wind directions (mountain-sea) generating alternative patterns of ventilation (morning-evening).
