Client  Initiative proposal



Imagine the wall to be intelligent. The building without the doors. Once you came to the facade the wall let you in. The idea of the smart architecture evoked this project.

The pavilion not only forms exhibition space for new technologies but is manifesto of innovation itself.

How does it work? The wall is network of pads filled with gas. Each row of the pads connected between each other, so that the gas can freely pass from one pad to other. The sensors on the facade recognize the human body and pass the signal. The gas pumped out from the certain rows to shrink the pads. The wall forms the arch like gate and lets the people pass in.
