Cloud 9, an award winning Barcelona-based firm known for its dynamic, cutting-edge architecture, has teamed up with Pasadena Art Center to design and fabricate a pavilion located on the Costa Brava. The form was inspired from the local environment which led to a natural geometry and parametric design. Concepts were developed and prototyped at Pasadena’s Hillside Campus before being implemented at the construction site. A giant igloo-shaped balloon supported the web-like formwork made from rugged fabric that was filled with a new developed high-strength concrete mix. The pavilion was featured on the Art Center’s Dot Magazine cover page fall 2014 edition.
