Digital Design of a Thin-shell Metal Woven Pavilion by XISUI LA & Degital Studio

The Thin-shell Metal Woven Pavilion observes a new approach to digital metal construction. Its segmented metal shell is based on biological principles found in the birds’ nest, which have been studied by the team with academic curiosity for a long time.

This stunning metal roof spans 11 meters over the water, using a minimum amount of material and manual manufacturing while also generating a unique architectural space. The metal pavilion attempt to exploring new possibilities in design, engineering, and fabrication through continuous computational test with cross-disciplinary teams.

This project has been longlisted in the installation design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
