THE AWARD-WINNING BUGA FIBRE PAVILION

A GLIMPSE INTO THE FUTURE OF CONSTRUCTION

Architectural awards: Beyond Bauhaus Award 2019, Iconic Awards 2019

ewo is a proud lighting partner of the award-winning BUGA Fibre Pavilion, The project, which builds on years of biometric research, is run by the Institute for Conceptual Design and Construction (ICD) and the Institute for Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE) at the University of Stuttgart. The BUGA Fibre Pavilion uses fibre composites commonly seen in biology for load-bearing purposes, incorporated into the pavilion’s own design and construction materials.

Hannes Wohlgemuth, CEO of ewo: "As a trained architect, innovative architectural projects really get my blood pumping. In this case, the interdisciplinarity of digital technologies and biological principles transcends established techniques and raises important questions about our everyday."

In association with light planning office LDE Belzner Holmes, ewo provided 120 spotlights mounted with various lighting distributions, for the beautiful illumination of the 400 square metre area.

The lighting concept underlines the apparent weightlessness of the architectural structure, with custom-made luminaires accentuating the supporting elements from the inside, attached ends of each section.

The creative expressiveness of the almost transparent waveform design works in symbiosis with computer-aided construction and robot production, compliant with the strict German building regulations.
