At the time that WilkinsonEyre was invited to design this new factory and headquarters building, Dyson was one of the fastest growing companies in the UK. The new development therefore needed to embrace an extensive range of uses and be built and occupied in a rolling programme. Our original masterplan for the overall site optimised the layout of a range of functions whilst incorporating flexibility for future expansion.
The design created an exciting yet economical space with an undulating wave form roof which ‘floats’ above the trees, disguising the bulk of the factory.

Our exhibition house for timber construction company Kaspar Greber and its cooperating timber trading partners transcends classic product presentation by means of samples and leaflets. Potential clients and visitors can experience the product and its construction first hand, by touching, smelling, feeling it. Our take on the region’s classic gable roof refers to the company’s core competence, house building.

The assignment consisted in the construction of a guest pavilion as an extension of the main house.
Our first thought was to create a shape clear and simple, a cuboid placed in the middle of the forest, changing as less as possible the surrounding characteristics, as if it had always been there.

The new ABN AMRO Pavilion is unique in the Netherlands: the first built example of a purely sustainable and circular design. The main thought behind circular design is that the impact of the building causes the least possible reduction of the world’s resources. The circular economy is waste-free and resilient and that is the exact idea behind this Pavilion. Right from the start the recyclability of all materials used were taken into account.

The Radius Pavilion is an experimental design for a special place in which to experience the beauty of structural complexity, through the creation of a structure made from a few basic components that are repeated over and over again, and assembled in unpredictable ways. The painted wood structure consists of a series of arch shaped components all of which have two different widths, and all have the same radius. Some are made from a half of the circle, some one-quarter, and some one eighth. All are clad with a series of slats that bind the three arch support frames together into a structurally sound building component. These components can be assembled together end to end in many different ways in order to create many different size and shaped pavilions. Stairs that lead up into the interior of the spaces are added so that visitors can climb into and experience directly, the dynamics of the three-dimensional complexity.

For the Techtextil ‘Living in Space’ exhibition UNStudio and MDT-tex have created Prototype II, a modular shelter which envisions how we might one day live on the moon or on Mars. The design is inspired by foldable structures and the need for lightweight and compact transport into space. In the Techtextil installation the self-supporting pavilion serves as a space in which guests can experience a trip to Mars in virtual reality – as represented by co-exhibitors the European Space Agency (ESA) and the German Aerospace Centre (DLR).
