Project: Ambient Gem Swarovski Pavilion

Designed by Veech Media Architecture (VMA)
Location: Basel, Switzerland

The folded faceted structure originally derived from the need to conceal the extremely restrictive geometry of the existing outer tent construction and ultimately took the shape of a cut gem. The structure itself is composed of a pneumatic membrane divided into inflated facets. Animated lighting and sound design transformed the space into a spacious free-flowing subtle visual, acoustic and tactile spatial experience. More images under the cut:
