between the emirates airline and O2 arena, the ‘KREOD pavilion‘ designed by chun qing li just opened on the greenwich peninsula in london. easily rearranged, three pod-like pavilions are formed with a wooden structural framework comprised of an open hexagonal composition. standing three meters tall, each double-curved wooden shell encloses a footprint of 20 square meters, totaling 60 square meters. a waterproof tentsile membrane seals the interior from the elements. fully portable with demountable joints, the individual components may be stacked for efficient transportation.

the material, kebony timber, is a durable, resistant and eco-friendly choice ideal for both interior and exterior environments. currently serving as exhibition spaces, the small buildings may eventually be used or manufactured on a larger scale as office meeting spaces, garden or bicycle sheds.
