Endesa Solar Pavillion by IAAC
The Endesa Pavillion aka Solar House 2.0, is a beautiful project designed by Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) with the support of Endesa, the largest electric utility company in Spain. The structure is currently being used as a testbed for new technologies in the Olympic port of Barcelona.
“The structure brings the distributed intelligence concept to the realm of architecture through a multiscalar aproach. The project aims to define an adaptative constructive system able to respond each solicitation at the lowest scale. By doing this, each single module could answer to his own structural, energetical and enviromental needings. The skin will act as a network of inteligent nodes, a ‘solar brick’ that protects from the solar radiation, collects and storage the energy the data at the local scale.”Architecture Posted on September 11, 2012
