Polycentric Pavilion

Milan, Italy

The Polycentric Pavilion is part of the Architecture and Art exhibit at the XXIst Triennale di Milano International Exhibition (XX1T) titled Design After Design. The exhibit opened on April 2, 2016 at the Pirelli HangarBiocca in Milan. nARCHITECTS was one of fourteen international firms invited to participate in the exhibit and teamed up with CRAFT and Milan-based fabricator Extravega to explore the design. The Pavilion became a series of six interlocking aluminum vaults that spring from a triangular outdoor stage. CRAFT used a combination of computational and analytical tools to explore thin shell design and push the limits of span and material by optimizing the form of the arches within fabrication constraints.
