Circular, bio-based, remountable, inspiration-pavilion
The Natural Pavilion is an almost 100% biobased, circular, and fully demountable inspiration-pavilion that can be rebuilt in a different configuration at a different location.
The Dutch National Government’s Pavilion was designed and built within a year for the Floriade Expo 2022, and focuses on the spatial challenges currently facing the Netherlands: the energy and raw materials transition, solving the housing shortage, making agriculture more sustainable, restoring biodiversity, and adaptating to climate change.
The Natural Pavilion serves as a showcase for innovative bio-based construction and contributes to the increased application and scaling-up of bio-based solutions.
The building concept is simple but ingenious and consists of two main elements:
1. An elegant framework of wooden beams sourced from indigenous wood as a structurally evident shell, the modules of which are connected by a universal steel connecting element.
2. A flexible filling-in of the framework with bio-based and re-used materials such as wooden floors, bio-based walls and windows of re-used glass, with which any space can be created, and which can fulfil specific conditions, such as acoustic or fire-safety requirements.
