PVDF MESH

2015
Mexico Pavilion, Universal Expo Milan
Milán, Italia

The inspiration for the pavilion was corn husks; the challenge, to achieve their natural balance, using science to help us. The PVDF mesh sheets between 20 and 30 meters high were suspended to recreate the shapes that hold their core. For this project we conducted the engineering and structural calculation of the pieces. The translucency of the material allows to filter the light during the morning and illuminate diffusely at night.
