Skin – Pavilion of Knowledge

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Spatial Design / Installations / 2011

This is an environmental project for a multipurpose room, the foyer of the Pavilion of Knowledge in Lisbon. The intention was to create the texture for a perforated wall for acoustic and lighting purposes. The theme, ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange), refers to the museum’s aim of sharing information. By creating different texture densities with bigger or smaller cuts, acoustic percentages and the openings in the window areas of the rear rooms were controlled. White LED lighting between the wall and the ‘skin’ was balanced with natural light.
