Gernot Riether’s Cocoon-Like Sugarcane Buildings Win AIA Competition
Installed in less than two days by Riether and 6 students from the Georgia Institute of Technology, the 18 square meter enclosure uses 320 PETG cells. These pre-fabricated cells are locked together into six large pieces that are then transported to their intended site, where the final installment takes place.
Each pavilion responds to the unique characteristics of the environment in which they are placed, including solar orientation, lighting, flora, and water capture. They have been designed to illuminate dark corners and re-enliven one of America’s most interesting cities.
