Endesa Pavilion, in Barcelona

ENDESA Pavilion is a self-sufficient solar prototype installed at the Marina Dock, within the framework of the International BCN Smart City Congress. Over a period of one year it will be used as control room for monitoring and testing several projects related to intelligent power management.

The pavillion is actually the prototype of a multi-scale construction system. A facade composed by modular components responsive to photovoltaic gaining, solar protection, insulation, venti­lation, lighting … A single component that integrates all levels of intelligence that the building needs. A single constructive system that is capa­ble of solving a single house or an office tower without changing logics, just adap­ting geometries.

Each module, at each point, responds with mathematical accurancy to the different stresses of the different orientation and position.From “form follows function” (classic XX century statement) to “form follows ener­gy”. Solar calculation software, connected to the logic of parametric design, allows us to reach an optimized solution.The facade opens reacting to the solar path, being active and becoming permea­ble towards south, while becoming closed and protective towards north. That simple rules make the system able to respond to the full gradient different posi­tions or orientations, reacting with a whole range of permeability and energy collec­tion.

The Endesa pavilion is an accessible de­vice, technologically soft and easily un­derstandable. Its geometry, construction, materials and energy, and its climatic behavior are visible for the inhabitant. And we strongly believe that this transparency is essential to generate the needed environmental awareness.
