    Swiss Sound Box

    Swiss Sound Box
    Swiss Pavilion Expo 2000
    Hanover, Germany


    "We called the Swiss Pavilion for the 2000 Hanover Expo ''Klangkorper Scweiz''. Instead of showing theoretical or virtual information to promote Switzerland, our basic idea was to offer something concrete to Expo visitors, who would tired from studying all the messages in the other national pavilions: a welcoming place to rest, a place to just be, a place offering a tasty little something from Switzerland for thirsty or pecking visitors, and live music ''unplugged'', moving and changing throughout the space, a relaxed atmosphere as well as beautifully dressed attendants.
    The idea of creating Gesamtkunstwerk had fired our imagination. Dramatic music played by musicians moving around, culinary offers, fashion and key word about Switzerland written on the eams and with a light hand: all this was designed to merge with the architecture, a spatial structure of wooden beams.
    Taking the Expo theme of sustainability seriously, we constructed the pavilion out of 144 km of lumber with a cross section of 20x10cm, totalling 2800 cubic metres of Larch and Douglas pine from Swiss forests, assembled without glue, bolts or nails, only braced with steel cables, and with each beam being pressed down on the one below. After the closure of the Expo, the building was dismantled and the beams sold as seasoned timber."

    Congratulations !
    Excellent work on shaders and texture. Good choice to use blank/grey sky instead of the usual deep blue.
    I don't like the last render though, it does not match with the others, maybe too much bloom.
