When designing the pavilion I plan to use the minimum essential elements to define a space without a specific use, build and disassemble quickly.
Three main elements: the modular wooden floor, wooden arches that support the fabric enclosure and enclosure.
The fabric may have different designs and colors to suit the environment.
The base or foundation can be packed dirt, cinder, etc. when we place on the ground or on a wooden raft when we place ourselves in the water.
A “Pavilion” is a space defined specifically for a non-specific purpose. This is a Pavilion for a nap and read in any location you choose. This can be within your home, backyard, on a tree, by a tree, on top of a hill, at the foot of a hill, by a river, or floating on a river. Prefabricated. Disassembled and reconstructed. Use wood as the main material.
We build because not all human activity can take place outdoors. We need shelter from sun, wind, rain, and snow. We need dry, level surfaces for our activities. Often we need to stack these surfaces to multiply available space. On these surfaces, and within our shelter, we need air that is warmer or cooler, more or less humid, than outdoors. We need less light by day, and more by night, than is offered by the natural world. We need services that provide energy, communications, and water and dispose of wastes. So, we call buildings in an attempt to satisfy these needs.
Creating sustainable buildings requires that one consider the sustainability of their technological and material elements, resources, and environment. An element’s sustainability is measured by its durability, maintenance level, and recyclability. Economic issues related to its construction, profitability, and building stock value should also be considered. Resource sustainability can be measured based on its site condition, cost-effectiveness of the operational and life cycle of the building, accessibility, and favorable natural forces. Finally, creating healthy, habitable, and safe environments with social and institutional capacity should be the primary focus for environmental sustainability. The architect’s challenge, therefore, is to find a balance among technological and materials considerations, resource availability, and environmental sustainability.
I focus on functional and ecologically sensitive building by conserving space and preserving the environment.
I’m using durable, low-maintenance, recyclable, and economical materials and technologies. Multi-ply boards’ panels’ plywood can be used for external cladding, even in severe weather conditions, or internal linings. The high load-carrying capacity of such boards makes them suitable for load bearing applications as well. Materials and technologies consist of low-emission, non pollutant elements with low manufacturing impacts.
We join both museums through the joint ball.
Its main elements:
- The flat cover, consisting in two layers, each one following each cover attached to each of the museums.
- The lightening defined by the different level of the two layers, directed in its path by the plant inner ramp communication.
- The significant entry porch, its vertical planes organize the attached outer space bar, fitting inside the layout of the ramp and accompanies the access road to the interior. The large glazed surface with its doors illuminates the interior.
- The internal ramp, which connects the access level to the levels of each of the museums, determines its lobby space with store and warehouse under it.
The materials - concrete, ceramic, glass and wood - are similar to those used in existing buildings, although with a somewhat different treatment.
I think I have achieved an inclusive, harmonious, organic and simple solution.
