Strand Pavilion

The PROJECT

Strand Pavilion is a temporary building for travelling exhibitions, the third in a series of Pavilions using rapid volumetric erection, low-budget material and installation costs.

The design works with tensile glass-fibre strands to form a variety of volumes, spaces and enclosures.

Fibre strands are arranged in 2 bundle types – i) catenary rib structures, flexed into billowy umbrella forms; ii) paper fan-like forms, pulsating with self weight and air movement.

Paper acts as a stressed skin so that individually weak strands work together as a strong bundle.

Strand Pavilion was the feature Pavilion at the entrance to Guangzhou Furniture Fair.
