Text description provided by the architects.

As part of the annual Bex & Arts sculpture triennial, the visitors pavilion is a temporary structure designed to be a place of information exchange and sharing of technology — a project at the crossroads of art, architecture and new technology — sited within the dramatic Swiss landscape.
Lightweight wooden shelves support the structure, double as exhibition space, and can easily be disassembled and reused for future events.

Narrow black, vertical panels alternate with voids to form the pavilion’s facade and a custom perforation pattern filters the light and reinforces the relationship between the interior and the surrounding landscape.
The foundations are minimal in order to limit the impact of the construction on the ground and local materials and construction methods drove the detailing and design resolutions.
