Renaissance Pavilion

February 26, 2009

Renaissance Pavilion features an inflatable structural skin that is precision-cut by computer-controlled machines. It fully inflates in a little more than an hour, and the entire skin is 100% recyclable through a process called Texyloop.

Wind turbines will help generate the power needed to maintain the inflatable structure and any lighting systems deployed during the evening. The hope is that the pavilion will be completely self-sustaining and will provide a versatile performance space even in off-the-grid locations.
