The Endesa Pavilion has been designed by Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia designed as part of theSmart City Expo in Barcelona, Spain. The modular structure is made of wood panels that sculpt volume and respond to the orientation of the plot and sunshine.
The structure brings the distributed intelligence concept to the realm of architecture through a multiscalar aproach. The project aims to define an adaptative constructive system able to respond each solicitation at the lowest scale.
By doing this, each single module could answer to his own structural, energetical and enviromental needings. The skin will act as a network of inteligent nodes, a “solar brick” that protects from the solar radiation, collects and storage the energy the data at the local scale. During one year it will perform as a meeting point for knowledge interchange as well as a benchmark for smart grid technologies.
