Some natural materials, simulate other natural materials.
The pavilion to house the Bethlehem aims also be a contemporary simulation: artificial turf be used to simulate moss, and oriented strand board (OSB), simulates natural cork.
They are artificial and industrial materials, which simulate natural materials.
The pavilion designed to house a simulation, thus becomes a simulation of the simulation.
The outer surface of the pavilion is finished with a layer of artificial turf blankets 2m wide, composed of strands of polyethylene 4cm. Similarly, the inner surface is produced industrially board ends with resin-based and oriented strand board (OSB), bolted to a light beam lattice structure of steel tubing.
