Elytra Filament Pavilion
The Elytra Filament Pavilion demonstrates how architectural design can unfold from a synergy of structural engineering, environmental engineering and production engineering. It showcases the profound impact of emerging technologies on our conceptualization of design, engineering and making. The canopy constitutes a fibrous tectonic system that is as architecturally expressive as it is structurally efficient.
Statement of the jury
This impressively complex structure has a filigree look but is nonetheless stable in all respects. The structure is an impressive achievement, the result of combining various disciplines and technologies; it also breaks new ground in the field of architectural design.
