Photo series from the famous Pavilion of Spain at the Expo of Shanghai in 2010, designed by Benedetta Tagliabue / EMBT.

// The pavilion was a steel structure covered with twisted wicker panels. The wicker covers were woven by Spanish handcrafters in different patterns and different colors of wicker. The panels finally were covered by a special waterproofing material. They were also contributing to the thermal comfort of the pavilion taking into account the local climate.

For their Graduate Architecture & Urban Design Student Exhibition, the students at Pratt Institute, under the tutelage of their professors Michael Szivos and Carrie McKnelly of SOFTlab (previously here), created this series of suspended tubular tunnels made up of over 2,400 lasercut cardboard triangles interconnected with 6,000 thin plywood clips, taking over the Robert H. Siegel Gallery. The walls of the gallery are papered with five years worth of student work which can be seen through the portals created by the cardboard installation, which are also used to display models by the students.
