From the architect. The Aero Pavillon creates a circular airflow stream perpendicular to its openings developing an upward draught at the inner side facing the wind and a downward draught on the opponent side.

The invisible environment becomes a constructive element and emphasize the immediate understanding of the airflow, which again define the perceptive characteristics of internal space. Environmental conditions of wind combined with the penetration of light through the structure is thereby utilized as means for architectural articulation.

The simplicity of the form is created from the controlled complexity of planar plywood plates in digital parametric models for simple and fast production and assembly. Structural integrity is maintained through an interlocking system created of three types of elements – horizontal plates, vertical plates and dowels.
