Spanish Pavilion Design Resembles a Ski Ramp With a Splurge of Color

And we mean that with complete respect. Created by Pulgon Diseño and on display at the Floriade 2012 in Venlo, Netherlands, the Spanish Pavilion is a wonderful example of a sustainable design that is both flowing in its appearance and fully functional. The structure was designed to highlight the importance of organic products and how various things and materials in nature can be used and reused for construction. An amalgamation of multitude of materials and colors, the Spanish Pavilion seems like a natural structure that just sprung out of the ground and has a very ‘natural’ feel to it.

Wood from fruit boxes, planks, building works, demolition beams and sleepers have been used as both building material and as the final finishing products for the structure. The idea of the designer is apparently to propagate a ‘Cradle to Cradle’ philosophy in which he believes that every material that originates from nature must finish up as a natural part of it as well. And in the process Pulgon Diseno has created a green structure that is visually distinctive and strikingly vivid from materials that have mostly been discarded as waste.

Innovative and introspective, the Spanish Pavilion asks every designer to go green as much as possible and to do so in a creatively brilliant fashion. (found on Contemporist)
