Infomab10 / Kawamura Ganjavian Studio

A cool pavilion by Kawamura Ganjavian Studio houses information about a public arts program in Madrid. Built in record time and within record budget, the pavilion is made with polyester reinforced fiberglass. Two large openings allow users inside the pavilion. 100 circular perforations provide outlets for natural light to reach the interior space during the day, and in the night time, the interior is lit by the street lights. The pavilion is also fit to hold small events along the Paseo de Recoletos. The project was conceived as an experiment on the possibilities of recycling architectural precast fiberglass (polyester reinforced with fiberglass).
