Animation for the course "Blossom" at the Dessau Institute of Architecture, Dessau, Germany.
An exploration into the spatial opportunities provided by floral conditions. Instructors: Matias del Campo & Sandra Manninger (SPAN), Vienna.
In the process of developing the project the geometrical regularity, the interconnection and the double layering set the trend to follow. The chosen keyword, inflorescence denotes a group or cluster of flowers arranged according to a certain rule. These basic rules were applied on the volume of the former Walter Gropius building, creating a double layered outer shell for the pavilion. One of the opportunities deriving from this special skin helped in creating the stairs: one of the "petals" with a nice curvature suddenly reaches inside and creates the connection between the ground floor and the bar in the upper corner.
