The idea of this Traveling Exhibition Pavilion is the ability to disassemble, reassemble, transport, with proper security and HVAC controls. Students were asked to choose an architect and represent his/her design in the pavilion.
As a result, the Traveling Exhibition Pavilion design was inspired by an English architect Sir Nicholas Grimshaw. This project was an attempt to concentrate the use of his structural conceptions and solutions of climatic and environmental aspects. His work of structural ingenuity and sustainable design philosophies are presented in the Pavilion through the design treatment of building materials, facades and process. The goal was to eliminate the need for air-conditioning systems, which increases the design's portability, energy usage, assembly complexity and additional weight during transporting.
Aesthetically and structurally, the design aimed for a visual cohesive structure whilst employing passive facade strategies to create a comfortable interior through the use of natural ventilation and shading devices.
