Mobile Space I, II
2012/13 "Germany and India, Urban Mela" - Diamond Dome, Crystal Cube
Pavilion buildings for the  presentation of Germany in India

Development and realization of 16 unique pavilion object buildings as textile multifunctional rooms (exhibition, presentation, conference, concert, event) with 6 different construction types as lightweight steel constructions. 

The outside design of the buildings was inspired by the crystalline shapes of polished gems as well as the topic cloth / woven material. The pavilions can be combined with each other, attached and the facing construction adapted in material (steel, wood, different membranes) and appearance. The pavilions with appropriate fire protection are translucent and available in different colors double- and single-walled for different climate regions. All pavilions are completely recyclable. The different construction materials like steel, wood, polyvinyl coated textiles (membrane) in different colors/sizes are screwed or connected with tension belts and therefore easily disassembled and repaired.
