The redevelopment of the Pavilion Dufour and the Old Wing creates two new public spaces in the Château de Versailles. The old administrative offices have now made way for a new reception area between the Cour Royale (Royal Courtyard) and the Cour des Princes (Princes’ Courtyard), as well as a large staircase leading to the gardens. Visitors to the Palace are invited to follow a loop, just like in most of the world’s greatest museums.

This project considers the Gaon Lake Park in which the building is located as a significant contextual reference. The large park is sitting in the middle of a huge neighborhood with apartment complexes, two hours from Seoul metropolitan area. This unique type of construction is typical of Korean urban development—building and selling thousands of housing units at one time. Although this type of development contains potential negative side effects for the future, the landscape is more positively designed than the apartment complexes in preserving the natural wetland which is left as the original entity in the park.

The development of a prototype as a pavilion in one of the parks in the district of Manhattan, is stimulated in a practical exercise exploring parametric structures that expand the vision of the possibilities offered by the implementation of this technology. This time the project is a public space that with his centrality and disuse, try to revalue this urban void not only with the presence of the pavilion. The global proposal includes urban furniture and pavements to emphasize the radial nature and geometry of the place. Also the pavilion responds to a three-dimensional mesh that is coded to coordinates and main axes where are sets the diamond geometry and the scale of the openings deployed as a protective surface taking as reference the formal structure of deployé.

The Solar Energetic Pavilion is a proposal for a large public art sculpture made of steel tubes, and fifteen large solar cell arrays in the shape of four-foot diameter disks. The eight foot three and a half inch diameter steel tubes are all bent into six-foot radius curves, and connected together to form the main body of the sculpture. Each of the curved sections of tubing are placed together end to end and rotated to various degrees relative to one another, before they are fixed into longer curved sections. These long sections are then attached with bolts at their intersections, in order to form the abstract curvaceous shape of the pavilion. Fifteen of the long curved sections of tubes are terminated into a vertical position above the rest of the structure, where the solar arrays are mounted. Each of the fifteen solar arrays are also connected at their bases to sun tracking motors so the disk shaped solar cells can follow the sun throughout the day. The electricity generated from the sun through the solar cell arrays is used to light the pavilion at night, with the excess electricity used by the community in which the structure is installed. The conceptual design of the Solar Energetic Pavilion originates from a symbolic visualization of energy patterns associated with the conversion of light energy into electrical energy. It also refers to a large plant with leaves that convert sunlight for use by the plant through the process of photosynthesis.

The Picnic Pavilion is a functional art structure designed to provide a very special place in which to have a picnic. It is made of sustainable grown painted wood and is approximately 12 feet wide, 12 feet long, and 14 feet tall. Its shape was derived from multiplying and shifting five entryway silhouettes from each of the four entryways, up into vertical canopies. Four separate square platforms surround the floor of the pavilion. A circular table and bench are mounted on top of the center floor, and a disc shaped lamp is hung from the ceiling at the center. The Picnic Pavilion can be installed almost anywhere with a minimal foundation.

The Korean Pavilion at the 15th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia will present The FAR Game: Constraints Sparking Creativity. FAR (Floor Area Ratio) refers to the ratio of a building’s total floor area to the size of the piece of land upon which it is built. The FAR Game, curated by Sung Hong Kim and presented by Arts Council Korea, will explore the challenges and achievements of contemporary Korean architecture, under these regulatory constraints, and will illustrate the struggle of architects in Seoul who strive to improve the residents’ quality of life by utilising space effectively.

The new pavilions at East Point Park Bird Sanctuary use architecture as a means of framing one of Toronto’s most beautiful parks, while enhancing the pleasures of birding for visitors of all ages and levels of experience. Folded into angular shapes evocative of flight, sheets of laser-cut weathering steel form the pavilions for this wooded park on the Scarborough Bluffs, high above Lake Ontario. The materials palette, which also includes precast and cast-in-place concrete and galvanized grating, was chosen for durability and minimal environmental impact. The completed Phase One encompasses the Viewing Pavilion, a Bird Blind, and entry signage.
