The Echoviren Pavilion is a breathtaking structure that will having people ooo-ing and ahh-ing without even knowing the extent of how impressive it really is. Unlike other pavilions that crop up around the world permanently or temporarily, the Echoviren Pavilion addresses the environment in a very tangible way. Not to mention that, in essence, it is part permanent and part temporary.

Designed by Smith|Allen Studio, the Echoviren Pavilion is made out of biodegradable material that will allow it to decompose between 30 and 50 years from now. Constructed using 3D printing technology, it is comprised of 600 interlocking components. It is not surprising that it took 10,8000 hours to build using seven 3D printers.

The Echoviren Pavilion will be a home to animal life in a redwood forest.
