Public vote winner for sustainable building of the year: DP6 Architectuurstudio has designed The Natural Pavilion in Almere, Netherlands.
This project is an almost 100% bio-based, circular inspiration pavilion that can be completely disassembled and rebuilt in a different configuration at a different location.
It has been designed for Floriade 2022 Expo and reflects the challenges faced by spatial planning in the Netherlands: the energy and resources transition, solutions to the housing shortage, increasing sustainability in the agricultural sector, recovery of biodiversity, and climate adaptation.
The pavilion is a textbook example of innovative, biologically-sourced construction, and represents a highly valuable contribution to the proliferation and scaling-up of bio-based building solutions.
