Zhong Xian Pavilion

Tuesday, March 18, 2008

Treehouse In A Concrete Jungle: Architect Sergio Palleroni and Taipei students break through asphalt to create a garden and green office space.
The 3,000-square-foot pavilion is basically one large room, with an open loft over the southern portion. In form and materials, it is a showcase for passive cooling and low-energy lighting. Above the steel stilts, the lightweight metal-stud structure rises 32 feet above ground to catch any available breezes.
The pavilion’s wall construction also contributes to the cooling strategy. The materials are low in mass to prevent heat buildup.
