The Epiphyte Pavilion has been envisaged as an utterly adaptable building that will interact and actually ‘grow’ with the alterations of the surrounding city-scape. To be constructed in the green city of Munich (already voted as the most livable city in the world by Monocle in 2010), the location has been intentionally chosen to reflect the environment friendly nature of the building.
Coming to the structural part, the irregularly slanting shape of the pavilion does emanate a sense of futuristic bearing. So, in spite of replicating the attributes of natural interaction, the open form will seamlessly blend in with the contemporary modern setting of the city. Underneath the shimmering facade, the designer has thought of an arrangement of plywood framework with an elastic bolt system. This light weight skeleton will be covered by sturdy 15mm aluminum cladding, which in turn will be nano coated. Finally, the overall structural process will be kept flexible, so as the building can be disassembled, transported (in individual components) and then assembled at a different location.
