Epiphyte Pavilion

Epiphyte is a complete self sufficient, modular summer pavilion, created to travel around the world providing its surrounding with a natural aesthetic , explaining modern and ecological building systems in one architectural experience. The pre-fabricated organism is designed to have carbon-zero emissions, collecting energy at daytime using it for media projection at night. It benefits from its green or urban surrounding, while providing a new and interesting space for exhibitions and art installations. The cladding is covered by a TiO2 nano layer of shaped anatase that reacts to ultraviolet rays enabling the reduction of air pollution, cleaning the atmosphere around the pavilion. Epiphyte collects rainwater at the three lowest points of its construction, storing the grey water in a central core where it is filtrated, cleaned, vaporized and used by the mist system to cool down the surrounding and the thin film photovoltaic cells on the roof of the summer pavilion.

  • This is cool. I love it that the solar panels are not out of reach and the user can see them and appreciate (interact with) them. The atypical non planar design of the panels is also refreshing.
