Wooden Structures and Diamond-shaped Pallets of the Recycled Pellet Pavilion by Avatar Architettura- Wednesday, October 17th 2012.
The Recycled Pellet Pavilion by Avatar Architettura is an astonishing piece of architecture. This looks to me like a great up cycled use of a material that would otherwise have been thrown away, not to mention a great place to hang out in the summer. Italian firm Avatar Architettura is notorious for transforming recycled wood pellets into bedazzling pieces of art. Designed as a temporary art installation for the Villa Romana at the German Institute of Culture in Florence, the 100-square-foot structure was made from diamond-shaped pallets held together by custom-made joints. This giant beehive-like pavilion is eco-friendly and designed as a temporary art installation for the Villa Romana at the German Institute of Culture in Florence.
Transparent PVC was wrapped around the entire pavilion allowing people to look out while the opaque roof provides a sense of enclosure. This can only be a good thing as it encourages the belief that to live sustainably, we must respect and live with nature rather than see it as something that simply serves our needs. Recycled Pellet Pavilion by Avatar Architettura is ideal for art exhibitions as the structure itself is a standing piece of artwork. we are also seeing in the design world is that there is a new found fascination with temporary architecture, challenging our long-held belief in the West that architecture is about robust, solid materials and keeping nature firmly out.
