Spanish-Chinese architectural studio AQSO Arquitectos, in collaboration with experts from the studio Ydesign, developed a unique theme set to participate in international exhibition in 2012 Yeosu International Exposition. The project concept is based on the use of physical and dynamic qualities of the water, converts them into architectural elements of the pavilion.
An impressive landmark facility consists of several sections, each of which has its own level of height. Inside the structure there are stairs and ramps, and the main room of exhibition space, located above the sixth floor, offering extensive panoramic views of the ocean.
Elements of the conceptual architectural composition of the object mimic the molecular structure of water. Each block is designed for a specific program and connected to the mainland.
Blocks are surrounded by universal system of facades, which responds to the tides, low tides and wave dynamics of the ocean. Depending on the level of water outside the grid facades can be directed up or down, creating the dynamics of periodic motion.
Internal blinds ultra-modern facade attached to its glass surface, at the time, as external floating on the water, being the unique element of the system, which is in motion with no energy. Layering the two systems creates a fantastic effect blinds breathing buildings.
