The temporary pavilion by Matthias Loebermann "The Palettenpavillon by Matthias Loebermann is a structure made entirely from shipping pallets, ground anchors, and tie rods. Designed to be easily assembled and dismantled, and then entirely recycled at a later date, the resulting building is intended as a temporary meeting place." Architecture students from the University of Biberach assisted with the construction of the pavilion, which measure 6 meters high, 8 meters wide and 18 meters long. The shipping pallets are stacked on top of each other in a curvilinear design, fastened together with tie rods and pulled tight with compression straps. An irregular geometric form is created with an interior cave-like room that welcomes visitors.The temporary pavilion was used as a meeting place and media room for athletes and press to come to after their competitions. At the time of the skiing competitions, it was obviously winter and the structure was often covered in snow. As the pavilion was constructed of only tie rods, straps and pallets, dismantling and recycling the structure was quite simple after the competition was over. Loeberman used pallets to encourage people to look at the common item in a new light as a building material â€” back in 2005, this concept was still relatively new for most people.

Back in 2005, Matthias Loebermann while building a beautiful pavilion out of shipping pallets reclamation for the Nordic Ski Alpine World Championship in Oberstdorf, Germany. Shipping pallets are found all over the world and makes for a sturdy building materials at low cost, which explains the remarkable resurrection â€œâ€? Palletecture projects lately. Loebermann this pavilion was designed and built from shipping pallets in 1300 and held them together using a tie rod and pull the rope. At night, the interior was lit with the glare of lights and reflectors that shine brightest out through the cracks of the palette.

REFERENCE We were looking for different references to understand what kind of special and constructive qualities we can gain by using pallets, how many shape variations we can obtain by using very simple unit.
