The Porte Cochere from FTL Design Engineering Studios is a completely reusable and portable pavillion that is being used to serve as an interim building while the New York UN grounds are under renovation.

Instead of simply having a few parts that can be reused time and time again, the entire structure can be collapsed, dismantled and rebuilt on a whim whenever needed. Porte Cochere is a modern example of an age-old wisdom: Avoid reinventing the wheel whenever possible.
