Europe is notoriously known for its creative architecture. Abiding by this tradition, Spain recently hired Miguel Arraiz García and David Moreno Terrón to create a completely free-standing structure to celebrate the yearly Spanish festival ‘Fallas.'
Made entirely from cardboard, the ‘Corrugated Cardboard Pavillion’ features 3,000 pieces of hexagon cardboard meant to mimic a cave’s stalactites. How can a structure made entirely of paper be free-standing? Both Miguel and Moreno came up with filling the bottom hexagons with soil to weight the structure to the ground.
A social commentary on war, the ‘Corrugated Cardboard Pavillion’ stands as a reminder that the places we collectively build in times of trouble can strengthen our hope rather than deteriorate it. In all the ‘Corrugated Cardboard Pavillion’ is an extremely neat example of creative architecture concepts.
