Swiss Pavilion

The Swiss Pavilion at the 11th International Architecture Biennale Venice.
ELEMENTAL / Alejandoro Aravena
Estudio Teddy Cruz

The wall by Gramazio & Kohler was really impressive. It is used as a partition, but it also acts
as a screen or an art. It has a strong impact, a lot of people were coming witnessing this strange wall. Then you can find it was made by a robot. Amazing!

This part was the urban design project in Havana, Cuba, by LAPA from EPF Lausanne. I liked their approach to start from urban research level, to mock-up prototype.

The making movies of digital fabrication designed by Gramazio & Kohler. I thought it is quite new. Because normally structure is required only for strength, decoration part is added on the structure, but this structure has already artistic senses without having an additional layer.

This is our exhibition. I was mainly working for the movie it is shown on the screen. Our movie provides a sense of both cities, Addis Ababa in Ethiopia and Schwyz in Switzerland, in order to compare and find out characteristics of each city.

On the 13rd of September, there was a symposium organized by Reto Geiser and Andreas Ruby. Prof. Marc Angélil was presenting the aim of our Ethiopian project.

The presentation of Alejandro Aravena and Teddy Cruz were really impressive, they both presented their urban upgrading projects in Chile and in Tijuana. Their upgrading prototypes were well considered and successful projects.
