The project is a pavllion for the 2015 milan expo. It seeks to interpret space, through light and shadow by exploring a simple element- the architecture of its envelope. A kinetic facade was developed to regulate light, adapt to climate change and enable cross ventilation. To this end, the idea of a form changing surface formed the basis of developing a structural mechanism to control the characteristics of different protected openings.
