The Elytra Filament Pavilion demonstrates how architectural design can unfold from a synergy of structural engineering, environmental engineering and production engineering. It showcases the profound impact of emerging technologies on our conceptualization of design, engineering and making. The canopy constitutes a fibrous tectonic system that is as architecturally expressive as it is structurally efficient.
