Learning from Nature with 3XN

The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art invited the Danish architecture firm 3XN to design a pavilion demonstrating cutting edge possibilities within sustainable and intelligent materials. The result is a pavilion that is built of bio composites with integrated intelligence that creates a dynamic interaction with its physical surroundings and its users. The pavilion is called ‘Learning from Nature' and everything about the pavilion is literally inspired by nature itself: The biological cycle of nature is the fundamental basis for the shape, the materials and the dynamic energy generation. Self-cleaning surfaces, phase changing materials and built-in sensors that generate energy from the footsteps of the visitors. It unites advanced technologies and intelligent materials in a preview of an innovative architectural design. The pavilion is shaped as a Moebius band to symbolize the biological cycle; and the properties of the construction are very like those of nature – for example, the pavilion has a coating of nanoparticles that helps clean the surfaces and clean the air. Additionally, the pavilion is built of biodegradable materials; and as for energy, the pavilion is 100 percent self-sufficient. 'Learning from Nature' is unveiled today and can be seen at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark, until October.
