Though SelgasCano's plastic pavilion might look impermanent because of its material, its haphazard nature shouldn't take away from the careful construction that went into it. The Spanish architecture firm designed its plastic pavilion to be a testament to the versatility and malleability of the material, showing the many ways it can be used by shaping it into a vast forest.
The overhead coverings that make up the pavilion are polyester and fiberglass that measures just one millimeter thick, making it one of the lightest and most cost effective materials available to architects. As such, SelgasCano was able to spread the pavilion across the entirely of the 1,340 square-meter courtyard at the Fondation d'entreprise Martell in Cognac.
