Flexible space made of natural materials provide very healthy environment with high level of quality indoor condition. Pavilion is energy efficient and requires minimum energy for maintenance.

Pavilion as itself present the laboratory where students from diff erent faculties (architecture, forestry, agriculture, landscape design....) are able to share the experience, knowledge and innovative ideas all together. Beside students pavilion is open for citizens and pupils.

Idea of sharing laboratory now could be expended.

The main objective of this project is to gather students from architecture, forestry and agriculture faculties as well as other faculties with the scope of exploring, getting familiar and building with alternative materials such as straw, recycled wood, recycled elements of the building such as windows and doors as well as alternative foundation elements made from recycled materials.


The building will serve as the new student gathering space of IBU, to provide a welcoming, dynamic learning environment for showcasing the student’s work. The pavilion will be inclusive, contemporary and complementing to the existing structures.

The selection process was launched in May with the first stage, which took the form of a preliminary sketch ideas open to all IBU undergraduate students. During the Stage 2 the jury panel was able to select 12 shortlisted candidates, judged to have produced the best response to the Competition Brief, who have been invited to develop further proposals. Shortlisted authors were grouped into three architect teams. Members of the Judging Panel took into special consideration the following: originality of the proposed concept, ability to respond to the demands of the project brief, possibility of the proposal realization with alternative materials and energy efficiency.


The Judging Panel which evaluated the design submissions included three experts in the energy efficiency and alternative materials design, two engineers, two designers and one expert in the traditional design methods:
