SIMPLEX / temporary event pavillion

SIMPLEX
SIMPLEX

Simplex pavillion is a foldable cellular structure. From the outside its a spiky exciting object, but from the inside it is an atmospheric smooth gate. The roof is one single piece where all complexity is given to it in pre-production, so the set up process is very simple.
The shape finding method is based on the elasticity of the material. It is using the advantages of Tyvek. Each of the diamond cells are participating to create the overall shape. All cells have a deformation what shows exacly their structural position and make all of them unique.
