A cocoon-like temporary summer pavilion in Saarbrücken, Germany, is the result of a research project on biomimicry conducted at the city’s architecture school. Biomimicry, a design approach that takes nature as its guiding principle, is the specialism of Professor Göran Pohl, who headed the BOWOOSS research project.

This sculptural facade also doubles as an air-cleaning cladding. The tiles are produced by Elegant Embellishments (called the Prosolve 370e). They are lightweight, thermoformed plastic tiles coated in powdered, photocatalytic titanium dioxide (TiO2) which scrubs pollution from the air. #facade #material #pollution
