The firm FTL Design Engineering Studio just completed a prefabricated pavilion for the UN Campus in New York, USA. The structure with a futuristic deep breath, lies adjacent to the new General Assembly building, serving it as a flag of access and security screen for the delegates of the assembly. FTL designed this interior space with sustainability in mind, minimizing the amount of materials for its implementation, making based on a lightweight structure that can be relocated and reused in different parts of campus. Insert between the surrounding landscape, the arches of the vault generate helical winding, rotating an image, giving an artistic nature and plastic to the entry of international delegates.
The main function meets flag serving as part of entry while a number of historic buildings are renovated campus. As it has scheduled a mean duration of 5-year project. The project intended as a fully recyclable, is designed modularity with minimal anchor points and a skeleton of prefabricated steel parts, which together with making quick assembly, eliminate the impact of construction machinery on the site. In order to reduce their environmental impact, CTF has been explored in these lightweight structures both for its visual richness, physical as well as its sustainability.
The structure uses two fabrics: a glass fabric coated with Teflon (this is the main plot) and a glass fabric coated with silicone for greater transparency in the arches. The high-tech textile membrane has a dual purpose. Hall gives the resistance to work in tension, equal distribution of structural loads, and spreads the natural daylight to illuminate the space below. In order to provide ventilation to disperse the gas, the pavilion also has open walls and linear vents found along the beams, allowing the flow of fresh air to circulate freely throughout the premises.
