The Shell Pavilion merges recycling and modular design. It’s constructed from recycled corrugated plastic panels set upon a modular steel frame. Inspired by coiled shell morphologies, The Principals developed a custom crenelated panel system that filters light and sound and spans complex double curvatures.

The structure morphs to form a cocoon-like space for Beautylish, and it houses a series of custom oak-plywood fixtures presenting handcrafted make-up brushes. The traveling pavilion was presented at the International Make-Up Artists Trade Show in New York this April.
