Text description provided by the architects. House of Switzerland Pavilion emerges with the celebration of the seventy years of diplomatic relations between Switzerland and Mexico, Dellekamp Arquitectos began to work on the project without a defined program and site, so a modular system was designed based on a triangular grid that allows adaptation to different locations and changing needs of the program, which allowed transformations during the design process. This adaptability feature allows it to be itinerant and a location to multiple sites without damaging the environment.

The use of wood attached to the materiality of House of Switzerland as a common way of building in Switzerland. The pavilion is designed in modules conformed by laminated wood of certified pine and metallic unions, promoting the use of the wood like structural material in Mexico. These modules are derived from the triangular grid, thus ensuring an efficient assembly and dismantling of the structure at the site. Its prefabrication and assembly are in charge of the company "Metal y Madera”.

The total of built meters is 171 m2, unlike the first pavilion this will be an open space without internal divisions, has an open forum for cultural events and on its upper floor a circulation that works as a viewpoint.
