From the architect. A temporary pavilion for an exhibitor during the ACE Construction Expo in Mumbai, India was modelled and constructed using parametric software.

The structure measuring 20 meters by 6 meters is made of 110 industrially die cut and laser-cut corrugated cardboard members.

Slotted system slits ensured that members perpendicular to each other at intersections lock in enabling a rigid grid that has structural capacities.
