UNStudio were inspired by biomimicry, looking carefully at the diverse marine creatures of the deep. The pavilion emulates ‘bioluminescence’, using it as a communication mechanism with the public. The pavilion itself is made of two cubic volumes, joined to one another by doubly-curved surfaces achieved through parametric design optimization.
