AustCham presentation: Challenges and Learnings of designing the Spanish Pavilion

AustCham presentation: Challenges and Learnings of designing the Spanish PavilionWith the Spanish Pavilion at EXPO Shanghai 2010, weaving with natural fibres, a handcraft with a “global” tradition used in both east and west, has become a thread connecting Spain and China.

Nevertheless, to use this material in a building needs a special approach and normally involves studies of the environment and surrounding buildings. That of course, was not possible when construction the Spanish Pavilion.

This presentation aims to explain the challenges the architects faced when designing the pavilion and evaluates the final result.
