The Endesa Pavilion, aka Solar House 2.0, will be showcased at this year’s Smart City Expo in Barcelona. Where you may ask? It will be installed at the Olimpic Port of Barcelona on November 28.  This innovative structure driven and designed by IaaC with the support of Endesa will be a test bed for informational grid technologies. Over a one-year period the structure will be used as control room for monitoring and testing several projects related to intelligent power management. The pavilion brings the distributed intelligence concept to the realm of architecture through a multiscalar approach. What’s astounding is that its size and components vary depending on the orientation and inclination of the sun, the relationship with the environment and other technical needs.

 

 

Driven and Designed by IaaC and Endesa

Summarizing the project, IaaC explains the versatility and functional features of the pavilion: “The project is an exercise in which a building, under the guidance of the block type of Barcelona, is adapted by adding a series of modules on its facade. These modules, which are seen as triangular pieces section, make possible for the building to optimize energy and spatial intelligence. Its size and components vary depending on the orientation and inclination of the sun, the relationship with the environment and other technical needs.
