Echolot-Pavillon

A creative masterpiece designed by Koblenz University of Applied Sciences. Until recently, 3.5 million people were able to admire the “Echolot” pavilion at the 2011 edition of the Germany Horticultural Show, the BUGA (Bundesgartenschau). The shape of the almost six-metre-high and 17-metre-long building is based on an oscillogram that visualises the location calls of a type of local bat. Approx. 6,000 supporting and hanging wooden beams interconnected using SPAX (see photo, © FH Koblenz). After being dismantled, the pavilion now enjoys a new, permanent home on the campus of the Koblenz university. SPAX International backs this great project.
