Plywood wedges dominate the exterior walls of the Endesa Pavilion, a demonstration of environmental and fabrication technology built by the Institue for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia as part of the Smart City Expo. The most glaring design feature of the pavilion, these wedges overshadow the windows of the pavilion and adjust to track the angle of the sun on the southern face of the project. The pavilion is only a temporary resident of Barcelona, and will live along the Olympic Port for a year.
