Israel is an agricultural laboratory and a worldwide case study that exports knowledge, experience, and technology to the entire world. The cultivation of rocky land, the growth of vegetables in the desert, the invention of new methods of irrigation , the upgrading of seed quality are part of the inception of modern agriculture marked by creativity, dare and achievements.

Young Joon Kim (yo2) is the supervisor of public space of Dongdaemun Plaza in Seoul. He has invited 10 offices to create 3 small kiosks each.
The idea is to eventually construct 30 booths that will provide room for different functions; a series of mini buildings for exhibitions, commercial activities, exchange of information, surveillance, interaction. The stalls range in size from 4, 6 to 9 m2. But what is a kiosk?
Until recently the site was occupied by two large stadiums (for baseball and soccer) that almost touched each other; a surprisingly intimate urban gesture.
Wanderer’s Lodge is a small pavilion gently placed amongst existing trees in the garden of an extraordinary property in the north of Spain. In its daily use, it overlaps functions of protection, storage, entertaining, dining, barbecues, napping, acting as a small theater, etc. The particular climatic conditions to do with rain and humidity have suggested a lightweight materiality capable of reflecting the closeness of the trees and the existing main house, making itself present through the contrast of a polished and symmetrical piece against its natural backdrop. Designed for a young family of wanderers who travel the world, the pavilion celebrates the dialectic presence of fire and water as means to anchor experience to time and place. Construction elements are prefabricated and assembled on site by two local craftsmen.
The Underwood Pavilion was featured by The Star Press as Indiana’s new art destination. The traveling pavilion celebrates the qualities and potentials of Indiana’s post-industrial landscape through attracting people to places that are currently not considered public space. The pavilion is the outcome of the Digital Design Build Studio, directed by Gernot Riether and Andrew Wit, both professors at Ball State University. At the time it is located close to Muncie, a 70,000 inhabitants city in central Indiana.
The winning project of an international tender for the Czech Republic‘s pavilion at the World‘s Fair EXPO 2015 in Milan came from a young pair CHYBIK+KRISTOF ASSOCIATED ARCHITECTS. The pavilion is a house and an experience. But its life does not end when the World‘s Fair is over.
The submitter of the competition was the Office of the Commissioner of participation of the Czech Republic at the World‘s fair EXPO. At the end of 2013, the architects Ondrej Chybík and Michal Kristof won with the company KOMA Modular s.r.o., which will carry out the construction.
Article source: Jesus Torres Garcia Architectes Located in the South of Spain, close to the Mediterranean Sea, this small pavilion is surrounded by a remarkable landscape. The construction is defined by the relation between the form in the landscape and the contact of the structure on the field. The structure developed itself as a flower, as a natural fact, subscribing to Oscar Niemeyer’s approach. The whole project has been composed in the concept of “how to build in natural landscape?” and “what is the appropriate “weight” of a construction of this scale?” The non-program pavilion reaches the idea of disappearing in the landscape, attempting to erase the division between the intervention and the area. This concern of integration reaches the point where the landscape generates the architecture itself.
The pavilion was built with the means of CNC machines and other digital fabrication techniques, during the week of the BCN Fab10 (the 10th international congress on digital fabrication, organised by the Fab Lab Network and hosted this year in Barcelona at IAAC – Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia)
The iWeb is a single space building that was originally designed as the pavilion for the province of Noord Holland for the Floriade 2002, the international exhibition of flowers and gardening, held every 10 years in The Netherlands. The iWeb was later redeveloped as laboratory for the Hyperbody Research Group (HRG), Delft University of Technology, faculty of Architecture (TU Delft). The building lost its function after a coffee machine destroyed the faculty of Architecture building in May 2008. In September 2014 ONL [Oosterhuis_Lénárd] (ONL) donated the iWeb building to the public domain by uploading the design and construction datasets to GitHub.
