    The pavilion is like a cutout but the pattern is not continuous…so I think the idea is contradictory. Besides, the section and the floor plan is quite simple. In my opinion it may be better if all that “folds” had shaped the program inside. Definitely this cutout is only like a shell.

    mvd; I’m sure you’ll find (on closer inspection) than the pattern is indeed continuous. I do however agree that it is just a shell for a more pedantic program.

    Instead of the ARCHITECTURE section call it VACUOUS UNBUILT CRAP.

    just remind me some contemporary sort of beauty womans – nice envelope, but almost nothing inside,,, anyway, nice pictures, nice ilusion…

    the ‘cut-out’ doesn’t work. :/

  • Don

    Maby this project is not fresh -the ‘cut-out’ style started ca. 4 years ago in design- but I think, this building won’t look in reality like on those renderings. This conceptual project is a fake. The whole illusion will stay unfortunately only on posters. In my opinion it will be extremely hard to achieve such impression in reality.I’m afraid of final look of this building which can be a disaster…
