Chun Qing Li's Sustainable Pavilion Unveiled at London Design Festival

Chun Qing Li's Sustainable Pavilion Unveiled at London Design Festival | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
KREOD pavilion in Greenwich by local architect Chun Qing Li and featuring an intricate FSC Norwegian wood design opens up for London Design Festival 2012.

A new architectural landmark for East London was unveiled at this year's bustling London Design Festival. Located in a green-walled square at the Greenwich Peninsula, the KREOD pavilion consists of three interconnected pods made from Tensile fabric and an award-winning sustainable wood called Kebony. Inspired by nature and intricate in its design, this mobile, durable pavilion by Chun Qing Li, sets a new standard for sustainable thinking in the digital age.

Designed to resemble three giant seeds, each measuring 215 square feet, the indoor/outdoor sculptural shelter can be used for sheltering public exhibitions, office meeting areas and even bike sheds. The intricate wooden structure is made from FSC Kebony wood that went through a patented process (Kebonization) that makes the wood harder, more durable and resistant, by using a non-toxic liquid derived from agricultural bio waste.

Structural engineers Ramboll UK worked alongside geometry consultants Evolute to develop the eye-catching structure and the interiors, made from white durable TensileFabric. Designed for the public, the KREOD pavilion will be at the Greenwich Peninsula Square until mid October and will be seen at high-profile locations across the city of London. Weatherproof LEDs inside the structure give the pavilion a fantastic glowing effect during the night and making it shine exposing its cells to the low-energy lights changing colors...
