Elval Colour and ETEM challenged architects and students to create the exhibition stand of the future

The “Prospective system pavilion” won the jury with its simplicity and easy fit-out

Elval Colour the European coated aluminium manufacturer of building envelope products and the leader in production of aluminium profiles ЕТЕМ were the main partners in the international workshop for parametric design and prototyping strategies – Intelligent Tectonics V1.0, organized by Design Morphine.

20 Bulgarian and foreign architects and architecture students have been challenged to create and model an exhibition stand for both companies to participate in the largest construction exhibition in Europe – BAU Munich. The requirement was to use etalbond® for the parametric installation.

The project “Prospective system pavilion”, representing rectangular panels folded diagonally has won has won the first place. The participants in the winning team, who will have the opportunity of further developing their project, together with the experts, taking part in the workshop, are the student in architecture Sebastian Comanescu from Romania, architect Ertunç Hünkar from Turkey, and architect Adrian Auth from Hungary.

"The foundation of our concept is simplicity. We decided to transform a typical panel with a rectangular shape into a structural element by using diagonal folding and minimum effort. The likeness of the bent panels to a scale generates the final form and color of our architectural project”, said Sebastian Comanescu from Romania, who is also the youngest participant in the workshop.

“I also like the fact that the project is neat and simplified. Only folding has been used, but at the same time it looks resistant and stable. There is potential to use different colors, and the easy means of fit-out is an exception advantage”, added Veneta Novakova, R&D Director in ЕТЕМ Group.

A special part of the workshop was a visit of the participants in the ЕТЕМ factory, where the method of working with the composite aluminum material etalbond® was explained clearly. The visit also included a presentation by arch. Eleni Gkini from Elval Colour and lecture by professor Alexandros Vazakas, who presented results from his previous courses, in which etalbond® has been used to design and manufacture parametric furniture, as well as designing complex shading structures.
