Designed by Margen Lab and driven by IAAC (Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia), the Endesa Pavilion was self-sufficient solar wood building installed at the Marina Dock.
Completed in one month and over a period of one year, the pavillion is actually the prototype of a multi-scale construction system.
As part of a cutting-edge smart grid plan of Endesa, Smartcity Barcelona provisional Control Centre was an innovative solar-powered building which was also open to the public as an exhibition centre for the project.
Inspiration from architect:
The structure brings the distributed intelligence concept to the realm of architecture through a multi scalar approach. The skin will act as a network of intelligent nodes, a “solar brick” that protects from the solar radiation, collects and storage the energy the data at the local scale.
