Aragon Pavilion

The Aragon Pavilion by Olano Y Mendo Architects was built for the 2008 Expo in Spain. The form of the building takes its inspiration from the areas traditional basketwork. The facade is formed from a continuous woven surface made from panels of glass and fibreglass reinforced concrete. It becomes more transparent as you move up the building, giving greater privacy at ground level and views over the surrounding landscape from the top level.
