České Budějovice

A multi-function pavilion at the same time serving as a monumental gate to the complex. The entry corridor divides the Pavilion T in to two sections – halls T1 and T2. A strip of membranes stretches from the fair ground’s main gate to the existing Pavilion Z connecting the pavilions both optically and functionally. The east façade is shaped evoking a turbine or its segment consisting of round eaves establishing a façade lining, a folded metal envelope consisting of profile sheets, circular openings, and overhanging membranes. They are hoisted on steel cables shaped as turbine fins and used as shades. A woman lying on her hip was the inspiration for the pavilion’s south façade design.
