A pavilion's design for Retiro's park in Madrid. This was the design presented for the 5th course of construction in UEM (Madrid). Presented on Material Gallery - Madrid along summer 2010.

The criteria, was to design a pavilion with the shape of a recognized object with a predefined material assigned by the tutor. My assigned material was wood, so I take a termite's larvae as shape, because it's one of the worst enemys for wood.

As a proccess of investigation, I tried merge all the stages of the design into one parametric proccess, using the power of recursivity, to optimize the shape and final design.

The entire design and building methods have been parametrized, so this design is valid and adaptable to many situations (change of locations, number of rings, temperatures, scale, etc).
