BUGA Fibre Pavilion 2019
Embedded in the wavelike landscape of the Bundesgartenschau grounds, the BUGA Fibre Pavilion offers visitors an astounding architectural experience and a glimpse of future construction. It builds on many years of biomimetic research in architecture at the University of Stuttgart and demonstrates how combining cutting-edge computational technologies with constructional principles found in nature enables the development of truly novel and genuinely digital building systems.
Statement of the jury
The pavilion fascinates onlookers in many different ways. Firstly through its distinctive, organic-looking design and secondly through the knowledge that the construction is made up of glass and carbon-fibre elements manufactured by robots. A noteworthy structure that is both technologically and aesthetically intriguing.
