An experimental pavilion entitled “BOXEL,” was designed and constructed by the students of the architecture department at The Detmold School of Architecture and Interior Design.
Notes about BOXEL (from ArchDaily):
the expressive design by henri schweynoch creates a spatial scenery for presentations, concerts, events and gatherings on the campus. as part of the digital design course, the students were not only asked to conceptualize a summer pavilion but also to construct and realize the design as a mock-up in scale 1:1, using digital design and fabrication tools.
Finally a simple system of slats and screws was chosen for the assembly of the pavilion that allowed for a flexible and invisible connection. Additional bracings were placed in the upper part of the boxes to generate the required stiffness of the modules. The structural load transfer was realized by concrete-lined boxes at the three base points that served as foundation for the pavilion.
BOXEL was erected in only one week by the students and served as a scenic background for the end of semester party and during the international summer school (www.a-d-a-d.com) at the University in Detmold. The beer boxes which, after being ten years in use, were supplied by the local brewery and will be recycled when the pavilion is being disassembled.
