This eye-catching pink pavilion sits in the centre of the 18th-century walled garden originally designed by Georgian landscaper Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown. The structure is made from birch ply and fabric, and is based on a rectangle of paper that has been folded in a way that gives it structural stability and creates a sense of shelter. Engineered ply was cut using a five-axis CNC. It won the Small Project category at the 2018 Wood Awards and more information can be found at woodawards.com/look-look-look

Curved cladding4 Charred timber clads the tiered balconies in Sydney’s redeveloped Barangaroo South precinct. The cladding is made from concentric timber dowels, which were individually steam bent and laminated. The dowels, constructed from Accoya, were charred using the traditional Japanese Shou Sugi Ban technique, creating a dark finish. For more information, go to www.dezeen.com
