Installed at the Marina Dock in Barcelona Spain, ENDESA Pavilion is a self-sufficient solar prototype.  It will be used as control room for monitoring and testing several projects related to intelligent power management.  ENDESA Pavilion is a single component that integrates all levels of intelligence that the building needs.

From “form follows function” to “form follows energy”, the facade opens reacting to the solar path, being active and becoming permeable towards south, while becoming closed and protective towards north. A parametric logic adapts façade geometries to the specific environmental requirements of a building’s specific areas. Its modular component façade is composed of elements such as solar brick, solar protection, insulation, ventilation, and lighting.
The Endesa Pavilion is an unusual structure composed of sharply-angled, layered roof lines topped with solar panels. Installed last year in the port area of Villa Olympica, the building’s modular facade creatively maximizes solar absorption.

The pavilion is actually the prototype of a multi-scale construction system. The behavior of it skin makes visible the environmental and climatic processes that surrounds the prototype.
