Through a series of displayed research and discussions, the exhibition aims to understand how architects may need to unite on different “fronts” of world crises, including the refugee crisis, the housing crisis, and the crisis of the architectural profession, among others. This pavilion will host a series of “workshops and site-specific events” that will unite visitors into one cooperative network. It will become a place for meeting, discussion, and participation. The site will “provide a space for mobilizing collective architectural bodies, locally and internationally, as well as a place for developing claims and coordinating actions.” SUTD Professors Design 3D Printed Mesh Pavilion.

Rather than utilizing 3D printing to create a scaled model, the pavilion project applied 3D printing technology directly to functional architectural components at a large scale. All of the printed nodes (19 of which are metal, and 72 of which are nylon) were parametrically tailored specifically for their own geometric positions based on the number of concurring bars, and the angle between them.

Amid the picturesque nature, artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude have laid down a new installation to take the meditative scene to the next level, facilitating some literal walking on water. The Floating Piers is an immense three-kilometre walkway comprised of a whopping 100,000 sq m of yellow fabric. Keeping in tune with the lake’s flowing waterways, they have scattered the sunshine textile over 220,000 high-density polyethylene cubes to allow people to kiss the surface of the water with their steps on the route, which stretches from Sulzano to Monte Isola, and on to the island of San Paolo.

The pair are known for wrapping materials around many of Italy’s iconic locations, including the Medieval Tower in Spoleto in 1968.
