Thin Concrete Pavilion
The Experimental Pavilion explores the possibilities of using special high strength concrete. The concrete's strength allows for super-thin forms of its columns and walls. Of interest is that the pavilion was created monolithically in two pieces and craned in. Prefabricated concrete elements generally have to be stronger than cast-in-place pieces in order to withstand all the stresses of transport and delivery, making this pavilion's material that much more remarkable.
We love that it references Phillip Johnson, too. Via sub-studio design blog.
