$20.40 + tax (Refund Policy)

The world exhibition “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future” will take place in Dubai in 2020. For the Swiss pavilion, an architectural competition was launched, and the real competition project will be used within the workshop. The workshop focuses on the collaboration between the structural engineer and the architect. Since such a collaboration is not possible within the framework of the workshop, a project was selected which, through the very clear concept of the building form, enables the engineer alone to develop different bearing structures and to align these with the architectural design. The aim is to gain an understanding of a given geometry and use and the creative design process for the development of a convincing supporting structure.
