the ‘xihuafu sales pavilion’ by chinese studio OPEN architecture serves as a prototype for the development company vanke group. working together with engineers from the china academy of building research, the conceived building system enables speedy construction, can be adaptable to different programs and sites, and also dissembled and reassembled after each use. the design is based on ancient chinese wooden structures that can easily be taken apart and put together again, sometimes at a different location. devised from one modular system, the steel structural skeleton and composite floor panels are prefabricated and bolted together, with aluminum and glass panels forming the building envelope. this enables a free arrangement of openings along the façade, able to adapt the program requirements within.
