Dragon Skin Pavilion in Kowloon Park, Hong Kong by Emmi Keskisarja, Pekka Tynkkynen & LEAD

The Dragon Skin Pavilion is an architectural installation designed and built for the 2011-12 Hong Kong & Shenzhen Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism Architecture. The Pavilion utilises a newly developed environmentally friendly material called “post-formable” plywood, which incorporates layers of adhesive film to allow easy single-curved bending without the need for steam or extreme heat.  With no material loss, a CNC mill divided 21 of these 8×4 plywood sheets into eight identical squares, and accurately cut the unique connection slots that were programmed into the pavilion geometry by computer.
